Happy New Year and welcome 2020! Buckle up and hang on. With the impending election, I’m sure it will be a wild ride. I have to say, I really detest the whole Democrat and Republican thing. I detest the mud-slinging and grouping folks into a certain category. I see good things on both sides and don’t 100% agree with either typically. Why can’t we just focus on the best person for the job? In the end, I think we have more in common than we think. I recently saw an interview with Michelle Obama and when asked about spending time with the former President Bush at various occasions, this was her response. “Our values are pretty much the same. We may disagree on policy but we don’t disagree on humanity. We don’t disagree about love and compassion. I think that’s true for all of us. We get lost in our fears of what’s different.” I thought that was such a wonderful comment! I urge folks to look for the common ground and be respectful of differing views and opinions. After all, we are all humans first and foremost.
To say my December was a whirlwind would be quite the understatement! Our family enjoyed a fabulous trip to Disney World to celebrate Morgan’s graduation one weekend and the next we were in Greenville watching her walk across the stage. Then it was time to turn in the January issue to the printer with Christmas just a little over a week away! Whew! I’m ready for life to slow down just a bit! I may just hibernate for January!
This month’s cover features Forsyth Country Day School. If you’re looking for a school, be sure to check them out. They have a beautiful campus and a top-notch staff! January brings the US Figure Skating Championships back to the Greensboro Coliseum as well as Monster Jam and Jurassic World Live.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
