HomeIssues2020 - Winter EditionMessage FROM THE PUBLISHER



Hello Readers!

I am not quite sure where 2019 has gone but as a family, we are relieved that it’s over!  It was a trying year for us and it brought a rollercoaster of events and emotions. This fall, we were faced with the decision to put our family dog down.  Rocky, a Jack Russel-Pug was 12 ½ and diabetic. He had lost his sight among other issues and it was time. There were also some hard lessons to learn about family, and I am confident that we have come out wiser, and stronger as a result.  Still, we recognize that we are so blessed. Blessed with health, and a family unit, that no matter what, stands strong in our own unique way. Things have shifted in our home. As the kids get older, and family dynamics change, we are finding ourselves getting used to the new normal.  From our family to yours, we hope all of the lessons of 2019 make you stronger, and wiser and bring you closer to all of the things that bring you joy and happiness in 2020!

Wishing love and peace for 2020.
