MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - DECEMBER 2018Category: Message From The President
December: the end of another amazing year all wrapped up in Holiday celebrations, merriment, good cheer, New Year’s resolutions, and reflections. Many people take stock and mark the year as one to remember, forget, celebrate, regret. Each summary is as unique, personal and individual as we are, but in the end, one year ends, and a new one begins.
How will you remember the year? At PRO, blessed by your appreciation and gratitude, our choice is to reflect on the good we have done, the difference we have made and the change in attitude and circumstance we help bring about with the resources, counseling, support groups, and education we deliver to those needing our help.
The road seems never ending. Every step takes so much effort, yet as we move forward we must always reflect on our PROGRESS; a desperate cry for help answered, a resource shared with someone in need, answers to a million questions asked by a new attendee at a support group. Miracles and magic, one and all, each giving PRO the power and inspiration to greet the new year with enthusiasm and excitement.
We all have much to be grateful for. PRO is grateful for YOU, your thoughts, your encouragement, and your constant support. Together let’s move forward with the strength of our progress and the inspiration of all that is possible in the months and years to come.
