The 42-second video is a quick hello from the Foss family.

The title of this post is a quote is from Star Wars. But its origins come from one of my favorite quotes from the 19th century Scottish author, Samuel Smiles. The full quote:

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey towards it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. ...Hope sweetens the memory of experiences well-loved. It tempers our troubles to our growth and our strength. It befriends us in the dark hours, excites us in bright ones. It lends promise to the future and purpose to the past. It turns discouragement to determination.
