It has been a little while since I have written one of our editorials, and I must say it’s good to be back. As many of you know, it was a bit of a rough year for me and for my family; but life goes on, and things are definitely much improved from a year ago. My energy has returned, I’m back working full-time, and once again I’m feeling like my old self.

Through it all, I discovered just how blessed I was to have so many people in my life supporting me through my health battle. I am forever indebted to my family, friends, and everyone here at Gherardi & Moore. While I was away getting better, it also showed me just how much I enjoy being your dentist. Thank you all for the countless get-well wishes. Your words of kindness and wisdom meant so much.

A battle with cancer will change you. Many of you know this personally. For me, it helped to reboot my perspective on life. It helped me to realize that I needed to focus more on the here-and-now and less on the distant future. As the holidays approach, I encourage you all to focus on the present. The past is the past: Learn from it and move on. The future is uncertain: Tomorrow is promised to no one. The present however, like the word says, is a present: It is a gift. Enjoy every moment of it. Don’t take any day for granted, and never pass up a chance to tell those close to you just how much they mean to you.

Thanks so much for allowing us to be your home for dental care, and I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year.
