It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or so the song goes… With 2023 now almost in the books, it is time for all of us to take a much-needed holiday break. But first, let’s talk about the year now ending.
Yes, the holidays are finally here! And with them comes the glorious opportunity to spend time with family and friends and kick back a little. I wanted to take a moment and share some thoughts on Holidays 2021.

Yesterday, I attended a memorial service even though I had no personal relationship with the person who had recently passed. In fact, I had never had the pleasure of even meeting this person. Yet I chose to pay my respects because I’ve known the family for years and am especially friendly with certain specific family members to whom I wanted to demonstrate the depth of my care and support. Out of respect for their privacy during this difficult time, I’ll not name them here – but I’d like to share some lessons I took away from such a poignant event.
Some would say a death at this time of year – during the holidays – is an especially tragic event…and there certainly was a lot of sadness shown there. Sadness is an unavoidable element of an event such as a memorial service. But there was also a lot of stories, laughter and most importantly…love.
