20211112 -VISAbilities - The Holidays - 190001.

The holiday season is in full swing. It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Holidays and celebrations change as we all change throughout the years. For example, do we look at New Year’s Eve the same way now as we did as children, or as young adults, or as we grow older? I think we do. Change does not mean they are more or less meaningful, just different. There is cheer in every holiday. Sometimes we just need to look for where it may be hiding. We will find and share it for ourselves and others.
