2012 was
a tough year.
I think the toughest
I can remember
as a grown up.

there is a perfect storm of
across life.

faith and 
family were all challenged
and just about survived.

The hope is for
resilience without hardness
faith without papering the cracks
and family without self-interest.

I hope this year
will be more
For us and
for you too.

Thank you for reading. 

hope is a place

Good to see you’ve made it through Kevin. As a survivor myself, I can say that it’s the KNOWING you’ve survived more than the actual survival that makes you more faithful/confident the next time it gets a bit scary.
