Thoughts on the New Year

There are times:
To hold open a door.
To surrender your seat.
To thank someone, in writing.
To let bygones be gone.
To remember your parents.
To listen with care.
To surprise with a gift.
To mind your table manners.
To honor tradition.
To give voice to your heart.

May this New Year be filled with times like these!

Hi dw! You are so wise! I'm hoping my year will be filled with good times with good friends and lots of food.

I'm so glad we're friends and maybe we can meet in person this year.
