Dear Sweet Family & Friends,
Although this year is just about over, I think we're still trying to figure it out!
I've missed hugging my parents, my children and grandbabies! And church family! I've missed seeing my customers' sweet smiling faces and offering them hot coffee!

Toilet Paper-Check! Hand Sanitizer-Check! Paper Towels-Check! Disinfectant Wipes-X
Handshakes turned into fist bumps
Hugs turned into distant waves
In person anything turned virtual
Planned events turned into cancellations

And yet, in all this, people are still having to drive so everyone still needs auto insurance! Thank my sweet God! So, for me it's business as usual. And companies still need to keep up with Employee Training so Cesar has kept up Safe Hands Safety, which won Best in the Permian Basin!
Sebastian has been grilling some amazing chicken and baking some awesome peach & apple cobblers, yummm! He continues to work for his dad in whatever area is needed & he has been our ultimate groundskeeper, as well!

Mari & Ismael celebrated their 1st year anniversary. Aww, love birds.

Emma & Cason celebrated three years of marriage. They are now a family of 4 & are having great adventures in parenting a toddler & an infant.

Nathaniel turned 2 yrs old in February, became a big brother in October and is quickly heading to 3 yrs old! He loves playing inside or out! He enjoys watching various shows from PJ Masks to Number Blocks. At this time he is currently into Toy Reviews on Youtube!

My second grandson, Arthur James Cesar Lee was born October 22 weighing in at 7lbs 15 oz and 19 % inches long, born two weeks early! He has a head full of dark hair like his Coach! At this moment he is big on eating, sleeping & pooping, heehee!

And so far, my third grandson, Calvin, is forming nicely in his Mommy Mari's womb and should make his appearance in late March 2021!

Though 2020 has been challenging, to say the least, life goes on. I pray we all seek God even more earnestly every day. Life is too short. Take a deep breath and recognize that we may not have tomorrow. So be kind Today. Forgive Today. Be patient Today. Love Today. Through the power, love & strength of Jesus Christ, we will overcome!

May the love of Christ flow in your heart today & flow into others around you.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Love Always, Julio Cesar (JC or Coach), Myra (Yaya) & Sebastian Martinez!

"May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think." --Ephesians 3:19-20
