As the New Year approaches…reflections of this past year at the Woodstock Inn flood my memory and I think of the myriad of guests I have met at the door this year…some for the first time, many repeat guests who seek the Inn out year after year for some time away from the hustle and bustle of life. I am always grateful and thrilled to see old friends walk through the door and it makes me feel good to know that we offer a place of refuge and peace for them time and time again.
Like most others I take stock this time of year and pose big questions to myself about life, purpose, love and of course …. the future. Sometimes I wonder …what would my life be like without the Woodstock Inn? Some of you know that it is not just a job but a way of life…an all encompassing, crazy, joyful, maddening, hectic, fulfilling, sometimes difficult but meaningful way of to LIVE a life…would I really have it any other way? I think not.
Peace as always…may this New Year bring it into each and every heart.
