To all our family, friends, and colleagues,
We wish you a joyous 2014!
At first glance, "Joy to the World" may seem futile when even the high holidays aren't exempt from grim and dreary headlines. But joy is not jolliness, or happiness -- it is not a glib and ephemeral emotion. It is not dependent on circumstances being perfect or on your life being well-ordered and secure.
Joy is deep, unreasonable stuff. It is illogical. Joy is born from an iron-willed determination.
Like the fountain in the photo above, we pray your 2014 will overflow with blessings, benedictions, serenity in the midst of chaos, and the moxie to choose joy.
This past year has been, hmmm...interesting. You've heard the saying, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans"? We lived it, learned it (again!), and hit plenty of speed bumps along the way. Our deepest thanks, regards, love, and respect for all of you, our cherished friends and colleagues, who kept the faith with us through the ups/downs, highs and lows. Amigas y amigos, you rock! :-*
