Happy New Year!
Every January 1st we turn the calendar and look forward to new beginnings and new starts. We have high hopes that the new year will be better and more productive than the previous year.
Maybe we had a rough year filled with sick kids, broken promises, and bad experiences. Maybe you experienced loss in a job or of a family member or close friend.
Maybe you had a great year. A new child was born or you got a job promotion that increased your salary and made life great.
Whatever life has given you over the past year it is time to turn the page and start anew.
