  1. I love your spirit, Kathryn. And what a great question to ponder with the arrival of another new year. As I’m walking into 2024, my boldly go looks like quiet intent. I don’t care to announce to the world on social media, etc. what my intents are this year. Instead, I am resolved to just get it all done. It’s not even a long list. Rather, it’s a small set of my most meaningful priorities that, yes, require a hard lift, after a pretty hard 2023.

    So, onward we go. Know that I’m part of a whole tribe rooting for you and cheering you on.

    • Karin, I can’t thank you enough for your support and kindness! Your words mean a lot to me. Rooting and praying for you as well and hoping that 2024 will be a lighter year filled with accomplishment. God bless!!! 🫶🏽
