It is hard to believe we are rapidly coming to a close this year and have been through so much change and growth together. It’s been a long year, and we’re all looking forward to a well-deserved break!
As this holiday season starts, one of the most spiritual times of the year also begins, the Winter Solstice. It is our transcendent time to reconnect to the natural world and access our most powerful selves. In its time of twilight, the Winter Solstice is also a time to reflect spiritually and inwardly - to care for self, for our loved ones, and to prepare for the longer days ahead.
It is also the season to pause, acknowledge goodness, kindness, possibilities, and hope. Most importantly, to embrace thankfulness, positivity, and humanity towards one another.
On behalf of AzRHA, I share my sincere appreciation for generously giving of your time, expertise, and wisdom to drive the work of the association. The association promises to continue to grow, learn, and work hard to be leaders and advocate for rural health in Arizona. The Association exists because of the passion, support, and contributions of our members, staff, partners, and stakeholders. We take time to acknowledge and say Thank You.
I express my pride and gratitude to those I work with, the people who make the mission and values of Arizona Rural Health Association a reality. I want to to express the same gratitude and sincerity to the communities we serve and our loyal members, partners and stakeholders that support us in many ways.
I wish you a Blessed Season and a prosperous New Year. May these days be filled with joy, peace, and hope for the New Year!
