For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence. Look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is. — Unknown
As tradition this time of year, we often find ourselves reflecting on the past year and those moments of celebration and challenge. While 2021 was a better year than its predecessor (the bar was pretty low as we can all agree), it was yet another year unlike any other in our lifetime. Who could have predicted the ups and downs we experienced over the past several months. Despite its challenges, 2021 has been successful in one important area – reminding us again of the fragility of life and to never take a moment for granted. Like most of you, I often get caught up in the hecticness of life and lose sight of its amazement. The past two years have taught us many valuable lessons, with the most important being to reflect, appreciate our loved ones and treasure life. It’s important to remind ourselves to occasionally take a break and recognize our blessings.
As we head into the new year, there’s much to be thankful for. We’re especially grateful for the opportunity to play an important role in your life and recognize each and every day the faith you place in us. It’s truly an honor, and we deeply appreciate your trust and confidence.
From all our families to yours, here’s to a 2022 full of great health and happiness. We look forward to seeing you soon!
