As the year draws close, it’s time to reflect on the many challenges and losses we have seen and been a part of this past year. It is good to be mindful as we prepare to celebrate Christmas, focus on how far we have come, and use this time beyond all the festivities to embrace the infinite goodness that has brought us thus far. It’s not anything or any power we have that shields us from misadventures but divine mercies. Remember, the greatest gift we have are the seconds of our lives, and the best currency is those seconds. Use them wisely, and have a safe and Merry Christmas!
