As this year comes to a close and a new year lay ahead, my mind is overcome by the infinite possibilities the coming year can hold for each of us. This past year marked a number of wonderful memories, but also disappointments and heartbreaks as well. It was the inspirational Viktor Frankl who said,
“For the world is in a bad state, but everything will become still worse unless each of us does his best.”
I hope that this year we can all strive to do our best. To be the best mother, father, sibling, child, friend, and citizen. As we reflect on how best to do that a quote from another inspirational man, Dieter F. Uchdorf, comes to mind, “In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e.” While I have a lot of resolutions and am striving to better myself each year, my most important resolutions involve spending time and strengthening relationships with my family and friends. It is by far the most rewarding and I hope that you are able to do the same – Happy New Year!
