As the year winds to a close I have become somewhat philosophical in my view of 2017.  From the politics to the cases, it has been an interesting year in deed.

As we look to the new year remember this, from the late John Wooden:

Don’t let what you can’t do interfere with what you can do.

You have the power to make a difference in your own life and the lives of other.   We all have limitations; but we all have abilities.

Whether your new year means a separation of another effort to stay in a difficult marriage, my hope is that you focus on what is possible and not on the limits you see in your circumstances.
