It is that time of year when we take a look behind us and wonder where the year has gone; when we look around us and marvel at our blessings; when we look to the coming year and wonder what lies ahead.
Like most of you, I can scarcely believe the holidays are once again upon us. Time no longer marches, it sprints as the days, weeks, and months flash by our faces. There is often little time to relax and enjoy sunsets, friends, family, and sleep. And it seems that the holidays only magnify the idea that there is never enough time.
In this issue, there are so many activities, ideas for entertaining, ways to stay healthy, and places to visit. At first glance, you may feel a little overwhelmed at all the information. It is my hope; however, that you will find a few minutes to curl up in a comfy chair with something warm to drink while you peruse the pages of this holiday issue of our magazine. Choose a few of the activities, try a couple of the ideas, bake a batch of muffins, and enjoy the entertaining and insightful words of our writers and contributors.
As I look back over the year, my heart is filled to overflowing with gratitude for family, friends, and our readers. As I look around me today, I find it hard to fathom that I am surrounded by such an abundance of love and gratitude. As I look to the future, my mind is filled with wonder at what lies ahead.
