No one can say that 2014 was an uneventful year for Maples at the Sonatas. We had more than our share of ups and downs. Fortunately, most of the downs were accompanied by ups.
Our list of injuries and serious illnesses was longer than anyone would have predicted at this time last year. The positive to come from the situation, of course, is the way we volunteered to help those in need. Certainly, none of us moved here to become caretakers, but working together, I know we made a difference in a number of lives.
Sadly, we lost some wonderful neighbors this year, through moves, deaths, and changes in employment. We won’t forget them and what they brought to our community. At the same time, we welcomed new neighbors with new talents and perspectives, and they have become part of us.
My wish for 2015 is that we continue learning to live together in harmony, enjoying each other’s company as we go through our lives. I very much hope for a healthier year for all of us and a successful business year for Wilcox.
On a personal note, I always look forward to beginning a new year with its promise of a fresh, clean page. I’ll try to keep this thought from Zig Ziglar in mind as I travel though 2015.
