As 2021 finally comes to a close, I keep waiting for the right words to come along to capture this moment or more aptly all the moments that encompassed this year that I am sure we all won’t soon forget. 2021 was supposed to be the year that everything returned to normal, that Covid would just magically disappear and yet I find myself canceling travel plans at the last minute and worrying about the impact the most current spike will have on the residents and employees that call my community home. I wish I had some words of wisdom about how we let go, how we celebrate the good, how we put the past to bed; but I just don’t. All I can think to say is that we have to continue to be kind to ourselves, be kind to each other, value the moments you have with the people you love and don’t take anything for granted. Its okay if your house is still a mess, you haven’t lost the weight and you’re still trying to figure out life in a world that continues to shift and change.
I wish you all love, hope, peace, happiness and health. Happy New Year and Farewell 2021, thank you for the lessons you taught us all.
