I want to wish everyone who celebrates, a very Merry Christmas.

I hope at some point during the month of December families were able to be together in one shape or another.

December holds many celebrations from Hanukkah, which was December 11-19, to Kwanzaa, which begins tomorrow and runs through January 1, plus many birthdays and other events to share.

My thoughts go out to our soldiers in other countries who are serving us so we can enjoy our freedom.

I thank everyone who has been a part of my life this year and look forward to meeting those who will be a part of next year.

Today was a wonderful day for my family, and I hope it was for you as well!
