Today is an important day, as is on every last day of every year. This is a time where typically we should remember the blessings of the year that has come to an end, thanking our God - or which ever spiritual entity one chooses - for every learning experience we have received that makes us stronger and hopefully a bit wiser.

I have spent on some occasions the holidays away from my family and I must admit this can be a tough season to be alone. I have also spent these holidays with my birth family and other times with my new Colombian family who gave me one of my best gifts: My wife Ana Maria. The key has always been remembering the blessings both in the face of challenges overcome as well as moments that made you smile and feel like the luckiest person alive.
