Edition 39: In Gratitude, We Thrive
As the year is coming to an end, I’m realizing more and more how much I am grateful for! Despite so many changes coming at all of us, I hope the rest of the community is able to find some things within each and every day for which to be appreciative and grateful.
It's sometimes the most simple things that draw us back to being happy. The cover on this issue brings me so much joy. I love seeing the warmth and happiness that comes from just the simple joys of an afternoon baking with the family. For me, my secret indulgence during this season is Secret Santa! Ok, it's not much of a secret that the gals I work with at Friendly Smiles and I LOVE our annual Secret Santa fun. I am lucky to have such wonderful and caring co-workers at the dental office. The team that Dr. Barfield created is truly magical. For this, I am thankful.
I am also really proud of our very own Alyssa for her volunteer work with the Jeremiah Program which works to transform families from poverty to prosperity through education and empowerment. You can learn more about the organization in this issue. In upcoming issues, Kari will be educating us on Lunch Aid another local organization aimed at providing assistance, support and fundraising for food insecurity and school lunch debt, which she co-founded along with Jason Boynton.
This year, I’m embracing all the changes and love revealing the magazine with its new contributors and our focus on giving back every month. I am grateful for all my friends and family for their support and help - I could not have done it without you all!
