Happy New Year's Eve!
The fall always seems more like a new year to me, but this year, with the job ending and all, I guess it does feel like a new beginning more than usual.
My resolution is only to go forward without fear. That's it. I will continue to do everything I can, every day, to support my family, to nurture my children, to love my husband, to stay healthy, to help my friends, to foster peace.
Looking back on the last two years, they have certainly been dramatic! And not in a good way! But I have learned a tremendous amount, made many new relationships that I am lucky to be able to maintain, gained confidence in myself and my skills and found realms of interest that are entirely unexplored, very exciting! I would like to work in social justice, environmental activism, peace, civil rights, politics. I could not do any of that without the experience that I garnered at the church. For that, I say Thank You.
I wish them success and health. I wish them more connection with one another, more understanding of each other's point of view and freedom from fear.
And in fact, I wish the same to you, dear readers, wherever you may be.
May peace prevail upon the earth.
