In this amazing world of technology and advancement, it can be so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind around us. We can look around us and buy into the comparison trap of not being enough, not having enough, or not doing enough. This headspace can have the power to shift our focus away from what truly matters. At the end of the day, all that really matters is those around us knowing they are loved.

This issue is packed full of countless stories of people who choose love, family and community to hold close and share with this beautiful city.

Life is an amazing adventure and one that can pass by so quickly. As they say, the days are long and the years are short. May we all take these lessons to heart and gently remind ourselves that we ARE enough, we HAVE enough and when we feel that peace, we then have the energy to turn to our family and community and pour out the love on those around us that this world is so hungry for.

As we all continue to walk this path together, hand in hand, we hope you know, Houston County, how much we LOVE each one of you and treasure our friendship. Please continue to show love and support to all of our incredible advertisers who so graciously make this magazine available to you at no charge. Your complimentary copies are available at each business listed on page 208.
