Dear Friends and Colleagues..
After a year of great personal and professional growth (my first overseas trip to deliver my first customer-facing presentations) and personal challenge (three surgeries and five hospitalizations in our family), it's a great blessing (not to mention a profound relief) to be enjoying the quiet company of family during this special time. We hope that you and yours find yourselves in similarly joyous circumstances.
Each year, I share this story with friends and colleagues, along with my best wishes for the season. May your winter celebrations be joyous and safe, and may 2008 bring great bounties of growth, prosperity, joy, and safety.
