I don’t know about you but the stillness of winter, the holidays and the start of a new year make me super nostalgic and contemplative. In light of everything that’s happened this year in the United States I realized, that I’m just grateful. Grateful that my family, friends and I didn’t have to live through a major natural disaster or endure a terrorist attack etc… I’m grateful that as a woman I’m able to speak my mind, be educated and hold a job of my choosing. As a result, my resolutions, goals, dreams whatever you want to call them have become simplified. As far as I’m concerned, as long as my family and friends are healthy and happy everything else is just icing on the cake. I hope and pray this coming year is a year of good health, blessings and happiness for you and yours. I’m genuinely thankful for each and every one of you. Cheers to 2018!
