Reflection & Hope
A look back at 2021 gives us an opportunity to look forward to 2022. Many of us would gladly chalk up the last couple of years as a blip to be forgotten. Unfortunately, if we just forget it, we lose the valuable lessons. Challenges build character, teaches important lessons, and helps us face the future. Whether that's as a society in general or as individuals, we grow stronger by overcoming obstacles and facing down difficulty. The quote above from John Dalberg-Acton, expresses the importance of learning from history. George Santayana said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." What we take away from the last couple of years will influence us for years to come. Might as well make the most of it. A positive spin might be to make lemonade out of lemons.
One important lesson from covid has been the value of nutrition, health and wellness. It has taught us that watching our diet (what we eat), exercise, rest, and sunshine can make all the difference in defeating sickness, whatever form it takes. Our gut health plays a critical role in our immune system. Gut health depends on quality nutrition. Ultra-processed foods can deplete the immune system when it's trying to fight off sickness making it vitally important to eat healthy. 2022 is the perfect time to get in shape, take a hard look at diet and lifestyle. In the new year, we hope to learn from the challenges we've faced and continue to provide our customers with the best quality food available. Thank you to all of our loyal customers who continue to support sustainable family farms.
