From the Inside

January 02, 2021

It seems that the national wish of our country is “let’s finish 2020 as fast as we can and get 2021 off to a good start.”

Even the message on a Christmas card I received from my grandson, Brian and his family, beautiful Amy, and three of the five proudest things in my life, Connor, Adeline, and Tabitha, wished me “Happiness and Cheer, Despite the Year!” This card of love and wishes led me to making some wishes of my own, instead of resolutions for the New Year.

I wish the medical profession would quickly find the right answer to cure the virus problems of the world.

I wish the politicians would realize that they are elected to represent the people of the United States and work together to make our country grow great again.

I wish the media members would become newscasters again and tell us the facts of news items instead of their individual opinions. Most people have enough common sense to make their own judgement about situations without help.

I wish drivers would be more respectful of the rules of the road, especially in neighborhoods with children playing, or adults walking, running, bike, or golf cart riding.

I wish everyone would realize that guns are meant to be for sport, or protection, not murder.

These are just a few of my wishes to begin 2021 with. There are many more I could add to my list, but why don’t you add some of yours, instead?

Once again, I hope the Holiday Season has been a very pleasing and exciting one for all of you and your families. Let’s all work toward making 2021 outstanding. We’ll talk again next month.
