Now that the holiday craziness is behind us and we've had our fill of black-eyed peas for a while, I'm looking forward and thinking about what's ahead. Nobody knows what's coming, of course. So while I'm glad for a fresh start, I also wonder if I should be bracing myself for the unpredictable. What I do know is that whatever is headed our way will be met by a bunch of Supers who are ready to take on the world.
Whatever it is, good or bad, this family will take it on together. Together We Are Stronger.
We will learn, and we will grow. We will meet the challenges of the year head-on.
We will do what we have to do, even when it's hard, even when it pushes us and tests our limits.
We will be serious when we need to be, and focus and determined. We will work hard. We will prove ourselves again and again, without giving up and without losing sight of what's most important.
We will look for and find everyday heroes, those who help and inspire others, those who remind us of our own strength. And we will do our best to help and support others in need.
When the unexpected happens and we struggle to make sense of it all, we will find healing in the power of love and compassion.
When we need a boost, we will remember our red tights and masks (maybe even put them on?). Hopefully then we'll feel like superheroes and be reminded that we are tough, and we are winners.
Whatever it is that 2014 has in store, we're as ready as we'll ever be to tackle it. As long as we've got each other, we'll be alright. So, 2014, bring it on!
