The Day After
December 26th, 2012 12:58 PM

The day after Christmas usually leaves people feeling a bit "high" or  "low" depending on the events of Christmas Day.  For those who spent quality time with family and friends, those who received exactly what they wished for, or those who enjoyed a day of fun with new gadgets and toys, the feelings of being "high" carry over.   However, for those who spent their first Christmas without a loved one, who suffered through illness or tragedy, or those who could not afford to buy or receive those most wanted gifts, the holiday continues with a "low."  

This holiday season is most difficult for many and for various reasons.  The past year has held numerous challenges for those struggling financially, physically, and emotionally and the new year seems to hold little promise that things will get any better.  But hope is always strong, and a new year brings forward that hope.

We can hold onto hope that our economy will move forward; we can  hope for better health, for new jobs, and for renewed and strengthened relationships. We can hope for home prices to increase,  for our finances to gain value, and for stability in our nation. 

Instead of making those New Year's Resolutions, make a list of what you most "hope" for in 2013.  Let it not just be a list of personal wishes, but include those who have suffered terribly in 2012 from natural disasters, terrible tragedies, and from so much loss and hurt in their lives.  Let us hope for a better world, that we will all be the light of hope for those in need.

We wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
