It’s a lovely day outside. A day that is desperately trying to move from Winter to Spring. It is a move that requires a level of hope, tenacity, and priorities as my daffodils are showing me struggling through the snow.
In this season I have you…my North Shore neighbors…on my mind.
If you are struggling in this season either with too many pressures or too much self indulgence (or both) take a minute to think about what is most important to you.
What kind of community do you want to live in? What kind of world do you want your children or grandchildren to live in? What kind of character do we want our young people to aspire to?
Is it a world where kindness, character, and thinking about others are core priorities?
Is it a world that you hope for and are willing to set your mind on?
I am betting it is.
This is a special place full of many special people.
I am betting on all of us thinking beyond our own concerns and entertainments and making this a region marked by character and looking out for each other.
I am betting on you. I am grateful for you.
Here comes to warm weather. Let’s get to it.”
