There have been some seriously terrible things happen over this past year. But this time is when most of us reunite with family, connect with friends and take pause to reflect on yes, the bad, but also the good.
One of my favorite people, Holly, is a former student, mom to two great boys and a good friend. In writing me last week about the tragedy in Newtown she said, "May you find comfort and joy this Holiday with your daughter and granddaughter and all your loved ones. Give them all an extra hug and tell them you love them a few hundred times."
I will, Holly.
Give those you love an extra hug too.
