I don't know about anyone else, but this time of year is a time of reflection for me. We are living in interesting times. Our country is experiencing major changes and is at a crossroads. People are losing their homes. Some of these people never should have gotten the mortgage because they couldn't afford it, but it doesn't change the disruption of their lives and well being. Many are still out of work and having very serious financial problems.
We just witnessed a watershed election that has historical significance to it. We are asking our government officials to the job that they are supposed to do instead of what they decide they want to do. Trust has been broken.
There is fear that the U.S. is going bankrupt and we will lose our way of life in this country. We are afraid of the type of country we are leaving for our children and their ability to reach their "American Dream".
I have developed some very serious health issues and as such I have become even more introspective than usual.
I hope for all that are going through issues right now no matter how big or small have found one safe place.
