Happy New Year

I just wanted to wish you all a very happy New Year.  I hope this coming year brings only happiness for all of you.  I know we have all had trials and hard times every single year, some more than others.  But I know I gain strength from some of my own trials, but even more I admire all of you and the strength I gain from you all.  I know I would have never made it through any of my troubling times if it weren't for such a supportive and loving family.  I admire and love you all and hope you all know I am here for any of you and would do anything I could to help you through the hard times.  

I hope you all had a great Christmas.  I know we at the Southwick home had a very wonderful holiday season.   Santa was good to everyone at this house but even better was having all 3 kids here on Christmas Eve and all day on Christmas.     We also had all of Channing's family here on Christmas Eve (approximately 26 of us!) But that was great too.  

Now. . . about MY family.   I have one major New Years resolution. . . and that is. . .that I will never let another Christmas season go by without seeing my family during that time.  I missed not seeing my brothers and sisters and all of the family this year.   I don't care if we have to start planning it now, we WILL get together this coming year for Christmas.  We can do it here at my house or anywhere else that works.   

Love you all so much, Jan
