Tidbits: As the year has come to pass, so have many of our friends and family members. Look back with fond memories, keeping a warm spot in your heart. A new year is upon us, bringing with it new beginning, new friends and hopefully great new adventures. Looking ahead, let’s all try to be just a little kinder, a little more understanding and not to be in such a rush. Step back and breathe. You will get where you are headed and in one piece. Stay safe and happy New Year!
