It is hard to believe that it is already Christmas and soon another year will roll around. We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season-the gift of generous donors and benefactors, incredible volunteers from all over, a dedicated staff and those we serve who teach us every day about resiliency , humility, kindness and trust. I cannot imagine doing this job without the graces we get each day from so many sources.
As we approach a new year, we are mindful of those of you who have helped make the Christmas season special for families who would otherwise not celebrate. Our Sponsor a Family program brings joy and love to so many and we thank you for the opportunity to do just that.
So, this Christmas as we face so many uncertainties in the world, let us try to:
Forgive those who have hurt us.
Respect the dignity of one another.
Look for ways to bring more joy into the world.
Cheer for those who are making their dreams a reality.
Have a good word for those who may be different from us.
Be Kind and, above all remember…
Love conquers ALL.
May the new year be filled with peace in our hearts and in our world, and as the poet Rainer Maria Rilke said.,” and now let us believe in the long year ahead that has been given to us, new-untouched and full of things that have never been.”
