This year New Year’s eve is going to look a lot different than in years past. There won’t be any New Year’s eve parties or large gatherings at a friend’s home to ring in the New Year. Instead, many of us will be celebrating at home watching the New Year come in on television from our couches.

For many families, they will be ringing in the New Year without some of their family or loved ones for the very first time. We are preparing to embrace a New Year and with it the prospect and hope of a better year ahead.

Let’s all look forward with hope and anticipation of a better, healthier, and more joyous year for all of us. Some of us have been affected more by Covid this past year than others, but we all have been affected by it in one way or another. Some of us have lost loved ones, while others may have lost their jobs and are struggling financially.

The hope that this new year brings for all of us is the prospect of a fresh start and the hope of a better tomorrow. Our prayers, love, and support go out to everyone for a better year forward and for everyone’s health, joy, and happiness in 2021.
