William E. Vaughan said, “An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”
I had the pleasure of spending my New Year’s Eve with a farmer, a nurse, a teacher, and a couple of 10-year-olds. We made quite the group. Each of us viewed 2021 through the good and bad experiences we lived through. All of the jobs represented were highly challenging in 2021, including that of being an elementary school student. As families and as professionals we’ve been asked to function in a world of uncertainty longer than we ever thought we would. Through that time, I’ve seen my family, my friends, and my community stand together, support each other, and hold each other up in amazing ways.
As we move into 2022, I know that this community will continue to grow. We will be the people that move business forward, who set new goals and then surpass them; because that is what we do. We stand together, we support each other, and we hold each other up in amazing ways!
