James 1: 2-4 "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." Same every year.

It's ok to say no. Other people can step up too. I will keep that one from last year but also add... Good things come to those who wait.

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I've started out, for God knows where
I guess I'll know when I get there" Tom Petty, Learning to Fly
