For me, the Holidays are a time of immense joy. The season offers us each an opportunity to share time with family and friends, set aside differences, overcome barriers and delight in the blessings of life and love. We recall the highs and lows of the past year, and look to the future with hope.
This holiday season, and particularly on this Christmas Day, I wish you glad tidings, happiness and joy. May your hearts (and glasses) be full and may the coming year bring you new opportunities, perspectives and good fortune.
To my loyal readers, I thank you for spending this year with me, and I look forward to sharing more of the accessible world with you in 2018. Just as I find hope in the promise of Christmas, I also look with anticipation towards the progress that comes with time.
As a near year approaches, let us prepare ourselves for a fresh start and an opportunity to spread good throughout the world. I will leave you to your families, friends and holiday celebrations with this quote:
The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing others’ loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays. —W.C. Jones
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
With best wishes,
