Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!Dear friends,

It’s been a crazy year, as I’m sure many of you would agree. We’ve seen so much heartache and so much chaos, and yet in the midst of it all, there has been hope and joy and proof that the great qualities of the human spirit carry on. For this Christmas, I want to share some positive, hopeful stories to remind us just how amazing we all can be. I hope this will bring a smile to your face as we go forward into 2018!
