What an emotional roller-coaster we have all had this past year and summer! The huge adjustment to remote reporting brought on by the virus, the protests in our bigger cities, topping it all off with the unprecedented fires has, I am sure, stretched many of us to our mental and sometimes physical limits.My hope for you this holiday season is that you find joy in the simple things: Sharing meals with family members; chatting with friends on FaceTime; enjoying the cooler weather as the leaves and perhaps snowflakes fall. Please take this time to rest and recharge. When you are feeling down, count your blessings. If you need encouragement, reach out. If we, as your association, can do anything to help you, please let us know, whether that be assisting with continuing education, directing work your way, or just lending a sympathetic ear.
