Happy New Year!

I’ve been taking a holiday break and enjoying blue skies, long walks, rest, and friends and family. On New Year’s Eve 2015, my wish is that Malala Yousafzai will be wildly successful in her work to ensure that every child in the world has access to education. Every child deserves that, and more.

Here I am with two of the children who mean the world to me: my grandnieces Audrey (11) and Lila (8). I’m the one with the biggest smile of all time!

I hope your New Year’s wishes will come true and that you will love and be loved on this New Year.
