Manager’s Corner

Have you looked at the calendar lately; it is almost the end of the year.  The Christmas season is upon us and the New Year is quickly approaching. As the year ends we look back at the year and note our lost opportunities but let us not forget the successes that we had.  The Season of Joy is an appropriate name for the season as there is much to celebrate; friends and family, gifts and gatherings, silent thoughtful moments and times of laughter.  These things make for a full life and we hope that each of you have the opportunity to enjoy it to the fullest.

Time brings changes which affect our lives, as the years roll on it is easy to lose track of the special things that brought joy to our lives. The special people, special places and special events are all meaningful and have added much joy and happiness to our lives but there are still many special moments to be lived in the future.  Let us discover what new special moments we can add to our cherished memories without letting go of the special things and people that have shaped us into who we are. Each day can be a new opportunity to explore the things and events that present themselves for our use.  Remember, change is a certainty and how we adapt to that change determines how we grow professionally and personally which adds to those special memories.

As the New Year approaches; let us embrace the opportunities of the New Year with resolve and courage. Facing the changes that confront us and using the experiences from the past to guide us we can not only fulfill our dreams and also help others to achieve their dreams. A happy life is more than silver and gold; family and friendships can fill our hearts with warmth and make those special moments that make for a wonderful life. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

I wish for you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and may all your special moments lead you through the changes you will face in the coming year so that we may all work together for the betterment of our family and community.

With Best Wishes,
Cecil E. Wood,
Interim Manager
