A new year, we can start over, start something new, create something new, or just be grateful for what we have, because that is perfect, too.  A new year is often a time to think about what we would like to do differently in our lives, a time to ponder the creation of something new and the letting go of something old.

For me in this past year there were moments of great joy and there were moments of great sadness.  For too many, there are years in which sadness may be much stronger than joy.   Often when someone we love dies the sadness overwhelms the joy.

Know that this year, and every year, your loved ones in spirit are always with you – in all the moments, the joy, the sadness, all of it…life.  Their love is always present and always strong.

Wishing everyone a wonderful new year!
