2020 has finally come to a close. It certainly threw us all some curve balls and made for an overwhelming year. It has brought everyone grief and heartache in some form, but through it all, maybe you learned something about yourself. Maybe you found strength that you didn’t know you had. And, you probably found a lot of patience that you didn’t know you had either.
This year brought chaos and tragedy everywhere you turned. Wildfires, politics, protests, and the Covid-19 pandemic left us all feeling overwhelmed and unsettled. 2020 saw loved ones pass without proper goodbyes due to pandemic restrictions within the hospitals and funeral homes. Smaller funerals were held with immediate family members while other friends and family had to watch the service virtually or not at all.
Throughout all of the unrest and heartache, maybe you were able to find more value in relationships with your family and close friends instead of valuing possessions. It took everyone together to make it through the year. Thank you to all of the first responders, doctors, nurses, medical workers, police, teachers, funeral home workers, and many others who have worked around the clock this year to keep the community going.
Share hope this New Year…be loving and kind to one another. Welcome 2021 with hope and warmth this New Year.
