It is time again to bid adieu to another year and a time to welcome new beginnings, new resolutions, new seasons. I love the New Year. To me it is like a new birth. A time of re-beginning. It always gives me hope and happiness. I look back on the previous year, say goodbye to the bad times and take only the good with me into this New Year.
Here is a poem that says what is in my heart much more eloquently than my words ever can <smiles> .
A New Year’s Poem: (author unknown)
To leave the old with a burst of song
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the thing that binds you fast
To the vain regrets of the year that’s past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of the not worthwhile of the days grown old,
To dare to go forth with a purpose true,
To the unknown task of the year that’s new;
To help your brother along the road
To do his work and lift his load;
To add your gift to the world’s good cheer,
Is to have and to give a Happy New Year.
I wish everyone a very healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.
