We have just returned from a Holiday cruise to Panama and Costa Rica.
My goal was to see as many wonderful orchids as I could.
We saw some but not many.
Imagine my surprise when we returned home to find the lanai ablaze with color.
As usual, I had to scratch out my word of the year.
It is an enjoyable introspective undertaking.
With all the turmoil in the world, we rely on our faith more than ever.
Further, as I have aged, I find myself imagining (predicting?) the worst.
My word of the year reminds me to return to my faith and...
Let go, Let God.
Wishing everyone a peaceful, healthy 2017.
