January 2023: Beacons of Light and Hope; Post-Holiday Recipe for Happiness
For January’s Director’s Corner, Sister Diana revisits December’s topic on the importance of being points of Light and Hope, because toward the end of 2022, we lost two individuals within the Hope Hall Community who embodied those qualities. In this issue, we pay tribute to both of them.
She also focuses on the topic of happiness, pointing out that it is “an inside matter, ” and she offers a “recipe” for bringing happiness into our own lives, as well as those of our children.
In this issue, you’ll also find articles and information on:
