Happy New Year!


As far as I could remember, I've always looked forward and liked New Year's Day.


As a child, it meant my brother's fireworks, as well as my mom's giving thanks for the past year and praying for guidance for the coming year. It also meant not doing anything foolish, not spending on anything, and starting a new diet and exercise regimen on the first day of the year. Many cultural influences meant following traditions that have been passed down through generations.


As an adult, it's a day when I reflect on the past year's events, discern areas that can be improved, and maybe relist the same set of resolutions that I've failed at in the previous years. It is also another day to give thanks for all our blessings.


These days, New Year's Day could be as simple as hoping and praying that Covid-19 will be history.


Whatever and however you feel about New Year's Day 2021, I hope it will move you to making yourself a better person, to helping others, and to believing that there is Someone out there greater than anything, who is always with us no matter what the new year will bring.


Blessed 2021 to all!

When I was young, Mom often shared her stories. More often than not, if I already knew her story, I told her that I had already heard it. Years later, she'd ask me before she told me a story, "Have I
