The winter holidays are rich with stories that touch our hearts because they resonate with our life experience. This holiday season, I’m reflecting on the theme of journeys. Stories of difficult journeys motivated by hope. Stories of journeys have a special appeal, because ICES is a journey, a journey in time that is driven by hope. As I reflect on ICES’s journey, I recall once again, the hopes that have powered this organization and the people who’ve helped it through the perils along the way. The journey is never ending. There’s always going to be growth, improvement, adversity; we just have to take it all in and do what’s right, continue to grow, continue the journey.
None of us makes it through any journey alone. ICES was built on the love and support of family and friends who shaped who we are today. This holiday season, take time to recall both the hope that has inspired you to join ICES, and the special people who ICES has brought into your life. Give thanks for their many gifts. And if you can, reconnect with people with whom you’ve lost contact. Life is a journey we cannot make alone. ICES is a journey that we are on together.
This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!
May this be a time rich in blessings.
Until next year. Happy Baking!
