As we turn the last pages of 2021 we look back on what a year it was. Again, we were faced with personal challenges- mentally, financially and emotionally.
So much has happened and continues to happen in the world and in our lives. There are days when it feels like a big test, deciding what is the right answer? However, this isn’t the type of test you take hoping for a high score. Instead, you hope for a brighter future, for your kids and their kids. To me that’s what it’s all about. What we do today impacts them.
Hope has been huge for me this year. There are days when I’m holding onto every little inch of it to get me through. But as hard as it can be I try with all my might not to lose hope.
I hope for better days, better months and better years ahead. Sometimes, there may be things to test us but what we learn from these tests is what will get us through.
