Look Back to 2021 with Gratitude

Look Back to 2021 with Gratitude

January 27, 2022

We bless this year for all we learned, for all we loved and lost.  ~John O’Donohue

We’re nearly one month into 2022 and we're still dealing with "the virus" and all that goes with it, including controversies related to vaccines and masks, a shortage of staff, angry clients, frustrated caregivers, and tele-health appointments in place of in-person visits. My hopes for a fresh start in 2022 were budding, but it looks like we might have many of the same challenges as last year and the year before that.

 I took this photo of a rusty can nestled among new spring growth last April. The image reminds me that there is always plenty to be grateful for—including all we've learned, loved and lost— even in the midst of difficult times. So, as we enter a new year, let’s not forget to look back and recall the small and big gifts of 2021. Whether it was your vaccination, special times with family and friends, a fun pet, a mini vacation, a new opportunity, or regular walks in the park, let's remember to be thankful for what has been and anticipate the many blessings that lie ahead.

 Warm regards,

 Rebecca Hauder BSN, M.Ed.
