05 Jan Kerry’s Corner: Resolution of Gratitude
We all know it’s hard to stick to New Year’s Resolutions. But over the years I’ve come to find that the value of resolutions doesn’t have to be merely based on whether we succeed or fail at keeping them. There is value in taking a moment to reflect on a new chapter and a new opportunity to embrace the possibilities that await.
So, in the spirit of optimism, my resolution for 2022 isn’t task based, but more of an intention to embrace each day with gratitude, no matter what it brings.
I am grateful for the hope that each of our three Houses will be full again very soon.
I am grateful that this year will bring visits from hundreds of families, some whom we haven’t seen for a year. I can’t wait for those smiles, giggles, and hugs.
I am grateful to all of the frontline workers who continue to care for so many throughout the pandemic. They are true heroes.
I am incredibly grateful for our generous donors, people like you, who have stayed by our side supporting our mission and the families we serve.
I am grateful to our Board of Directors who give so generously of their time, talent, and treasure.
I am grateful to our amazing and dedicated team here at RMHCCNAZ. It takes a village, and we have an incredible group of individuals who work daily to make the world a better place for so many families who need our support and services. We couldn’t do it without this team.
And I am grateful for the challenges that lie ahead. I am eager to see what new lessons they teach us – ones about empathy, compassion, and perseverance – that leave us stronger and more resilient.
I look forward to living in gratitude this year and am so glad you are on this journey with us.
