Where’d You Go???
These are the calloused words of old Mr. Potter in Frank Capra’s timeless Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life.
I have never believed sentimental is hogwash. We have memories for reasons:
They inform us when we seek our path.
They warn us when we start to stray.
They warm us when we feel lost or alone.
For me, today is the first workday of 2021.
It is also my only grandchild’s sixteenth birthday.
I have reason to look back and ahead. I also have this moment, this brand new year, to learn, to love, to live…to remember…
Cheers to a new year, fresh hope, and mercies renewed every morning! Fare thee well and godspeed.
