I can't believe how quickly the Christmas season has come upon us. That old adage, time flies, is surely true. It seems to go faster every year. This season is a time for peace and goodwill, sharing, joy, and reflection. As I reflect upon this year that's about to pass, I recall much upheaval and change in my occupation, an exciting election year, the worst economy I can recall, changes for my children from middle school to high school, and a diagnosis that came with many tests and at times distress. While many things have changed, much has stayed the same. Love of family and friends and faith during hard times. In the days ahead, I'll be spending time with my family, contemplating changes for the upcoming year, and shopping with my very best girlfriend on our annual day after Christmas shopping extravaganza. I wish for you all a blessed holiday.
