Marie’s New Year’s Offering

I’ve talked about my mother, Marie, any number of times in these pages. She’s a remarkable person, a remarkable woman. This is what she said to me in IMs this morning:

Happy New Year to you, too. Hope it’s a good one for all, but in case it isn’t, we can all pool together and deal with it. Together we can do anything.

It was aimed at me and at our immediate family, but I can hear the echoes of it all around me in what’s going on in the world today.

What a great sentiment to start a new year off with, huh?
