This past year has been one of those incredibly great years that must simply be enjoyed because they are rare.  I'm typing this from my son's house where we celebrated a true (albeit late) Whitham family Christmas.  It was the perfect cap off to a fabulous year.  This coming year has some great things already on the calendar: my first book release on February 1 and another move to a new location on the army's dime.

May your 2015 be a year filled with creativity and purpose.

Until next time,
