It's a special time of year. Children are starting school. My religious observance marks the end of one year and the beginning of a new one - a new year. This is when we turn our thoughts to what we did well in the past year, what we could have done better and how we hope to move forward. It's a time of reflection. None of us knows what the year holds, but we hope that it holds a future of life and joy. For many people out there right now, happiness, health and joy are unfathomable. Their homes have been destroyed, they lost loved ones this year to COVID-19 or other causes. One of the young children I serve lost their parent.
. As the old year wanes and a new one starts, I am immensely grateful for so many blessings, not the least of which is the privilege of serving my client families. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. In this moment of gratitude, I am also turning my attention to those in need in our country. I was told about this organization: https://wck.org/chef-relief-team, but I know there are many, many other worthy organizations helping people who have lost their homes and livelihoods. Wishing all of you a very healthy New Year.
