Happy New Year 2014

We hope that everyone has had a wonderful and safe holiday season. That your fondest Christmas memories were made this previous Christmas, and that your entry into the new year was a safe and joyous one. But we would like to pause to hope that the warm feelings, the kinder looks, the charitable giving, and the hopes of the Christmas season will continue to bloom inside of you over the next year. Giving and compassion are something that we should strive to achieve every day of the year. Need knows no season, and winter is just now setting in. So please continue to think of those who have so much less than you do, and do what you can to help them make it to another day or month, to know less hunger, to know less cold, and to know that they are not forgotten by others.

A new year always sets people to thinking of new goals. We all make those resolutions of things they would like to achieve in the coming year. And our team is no different. We finished 2013 with a bang. Got our website updated with the last investigation in just the nick of time...whew! And we were able to end the year spending it with those that mean the most to us. We had the pleasure to work with some outstanding teams. We added new team members. We worked to learn new equipment. We worked to make our team the one we want it to be. We researched, traveled, laughed, ate some amazing dishes, and helped out in our community and our world. We are very proud of what we have accomplished in the previous year. But now we are in a new year, and are getting geared up for what it will bring.

Our amazing case manager has already set up some tentative investigations, some waiting for the weather to improve. We will soon have a team meeting to decide on our group trip and investigation this year. And we think we know where it will be, and it will be amazing! And we will be putting together a plan of where we would like our team to be come this time next year, and what we have to do to make that happen. It will be work, but we have never steered away from that. And we plan to improve along the way, as individuals as well as a team.

There are a lot of things you can hope to accomplish in this new year. Sometimes a person makes goals so far from their reach that they give up before they even start trying. Sometimes the goals are too easy, and not worth the effort, making a person not strive harder towards the next one. So what you need to do is meet yourself somewhere in the middle...have to work for it without having to climb to the stars to achieve the goal. And this is where we plan to be.

We hope to continue to handle investigations for homeowners, as helping others to be comfortable in their own homes is one of the greatest parts of this job. We plan to revisit some of our favorite locations, to see if things have changed, or to continue with what we started. Obviously helping the community is an important goal for us, so something to help out our community, state, or world will definitely be in the cards. We plan to continue to add to our assortment of equipment, and that always requires a learning curve! so that will be on the agenda as well.

We also plan to continue the friendships we have made in the past year, and to strengthen those made in previous years. To share with other teams and to learn from them as well. To help build bonds that go way beyond darkness and entities, DVRs and dowsing rods. To spend as much time enjoying being together as we do investigating buildings and locations. To encourage others with a passion for what we do, and to help promote those with endeavors that will help boost the entire field into its own dimension. To not let the past rear its ugly head, and to stand strong as a team against those which would try to tear us apart.

Everyone is looking for that one piece of evidence that will convince the non-believers of the existence of spirits. And we want to find that too. But we refuse to allow this search to blind us to what is most important, the living. So here is to a year full of fun and fellowship, eating too much wonderful food at out-of-the-way places, laughter and joy, family and friends, and the hope that we will all find that this year will be the best one every.

Happy New Year everyone...and may you have your best year ever too!
