A Peaceful Reckoning

Here's to a peaceful new year!

This past year that we are tucking into bed for its final slumber, has been a notable one for us.  For our family, we had some very hard and sad losses.  But we also achieved great milestones and took wild leaps of faith together.   We stirred the pot and sometimes marvel that we had the courage to do so.  Change is unsettling.  Change can be downright scary.  Yet life is change and to both enjoy and share that joy with others requires an embracing of this force that can sometimes cower us and at other times empower us.  During this year of endless challenges, we’ve learned to turn our faces to the wind.  Whether biting or balmy, there is always something to be learned and an opportunity to be a better version of ourselves tomorrow.

As we prepare to wake to a new baby year, I wish for our family an ability to hold on to the lessons of the year in our wake and to carry them forward.  We wish for ourselves and everyone the ability to be brave and outspoken, even if the only audience is yourself.  From our home to yours we wish everyone the silence of peace and the roar of change.
