HOLIDAY CARD TIME AGAIN
Normally, at this time I am looking for the perfect holiday card to send out featuring a joyous message about looking ahead to a wonderful year. But, this year, I think that message will be “It’s fine. We are fine. Everything is fine.”
The past year left us with more than 730,000 Americans dead from COVID. I’ve lost friends. My family has been affected. The way we do business has been affected.
I’ve had enough Zoom meetings to last a lifetime, yet I know this technology has enabled us to reach more people than ever before. We spent a year creating some mental health videos that give practical tools for people to use right away. We’ve done virtual workshops on just about everything. And our connectivity to the rest of the nation has increased – all due to the technology created out of this pandemic. For people with disabilities who have difficulty with transportation, etc, this has been a boon for them to be involved. We are fine. The future is looking fine. I am looking forward to moving through the holidays knowing I can connect with everyone!
