2017 Dawns

The first morning of 2017 has dawned with cloudy skies, but no snow. It was a pleasant 40 degrees! OK, how can 40 degrees be pleasant? Well, it isn't 17 degrees! It is all relative.

Celebrating the Last Night of Hanukkah
and New Year's Eve
Chris and I gathered with friends last evening to celebrate the arrival of 2017 and the last night of Hanukkah. It was great to be with friends enjoying great wines and food as the calendar changed. 

Many people will be writing the history of the past year and the changes we may/will see as a result of what transpired. Of course, one of the biggest question marks out there is what will the 45th President of the U.S. really do once he is inaugurated and how will the Congress and the country respond?

I am hoping that the divisions in our country can be repaired and we can begin to move forward. 

For the year ahead, I intend to be more aware of the blessings that I have received and try not to focus on the bad at the expense of the good. 

There is a lot more good out there than bad--it is just that the bad gets reported more.
