As I always do on the day I post my End-Of-Year slideshow, I struggle with how to even begin to say thank you to all of the people who I have worked with and who have made such a difference in my life over the past 12 months. 2017 has been an odd year with so much bad news coming from the TV, yet I continue to be encouraged about this beautiful life we live; the smiling faces of these families, these couples, these wonderful high school seniors give me so much to hope for. I am a longtime fan of the poetry of Tyler Knott Gregson — in his book The Chasers of the Light I found this:
Know this, and remember it when
the nights get long or the days get
short or the space between the
minutes is stretched out and
pulled tight between us: Wherever
we go, whatever we do, we will
leave a trail behind us for the
world to see. We will burn white
into the blue of the sky, and not a
soul will be able to resist
marveling at the mark we have
If you are in this year’s video, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, and I look forward to working with you again. If you’d like to be in next year’s memories, I’d love to have you! Check out some of the amazing changes we’ve been through together: 2016 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011,; and 2010.
Turn up your speakers, go full screen, and enjoy. Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season!
