Happy New Year!

2017-gold-1473177563gn8My kids are just beside themselves with anticipation and glee. I daresay they might like New Years Eve more than Christmas or birthdays. Ok, that might be a stretch, but today is such a fun day for them.

I’ll admit, as I’ve gotten older, watching holidays come and go through my children’s eyes has given me joy in ways I didn’t think possible. What they understand, what they comprehend; what they treasure and remember. Their wide-eyed wonderment never ceases to amaze me.

They’ll look forward to Dance Party Marathon tonight – and streamers and balloons. They’ll get to pop little balloons and toot horns with glee. And they’ll talk about it for weeks to come. I’ll forget half of it – but for them, it’s seared on their heart with tremendous joy.

NYE might be a huge thing in your home – it may be quiet, subdued, celebrated at 8pm in lieu of midnight – or unobserved (for your sanity and theirs!). In any event, the close of one year and the start of a fresh one gives us a chance to say thanks. Or more like

THANK YOU!!!

…for supporting our charities, for helping us in our desire to serve West Michigan families. Thank you for becoming friends with us – sharing your own journey as we all walk through life. Thank you for supporting us in ways that we didn’t think conceivable.

It’s a fresh year – a blank page where anything and everything is possible. We wish you joy and happiness – love in our homes and peace for us all.

Happy New Year to you and yours – we’ll see you soon!
