    Thought for the week: Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have. On what’s right in your world instead of what’s wrong.

    On where you’re going instead of what you’ve been through.

    On New Year’s Eve, I went to dance at the center and brought in the New Year with the Prime Time Band and friends. I had a great time. Hope everyone is starting the New Year off on a good foot.
