Merry Christmas

As another eventful year comes to a close, we would like to extend our best wishes for a happy holiday season in one last poem (an original).

In a world full of noise, there’s one signal that’s clear,

It’s the relationships we build that bring our lives cheer.

So, let’s count all our blessings as families draw near,

For only together do life’s true gifts appear.

A Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New Year!
