Rewritten slightly from 2011 but the message is the same..

Happy New Year Friends,


Just what I was thinking!

Just what I was thinking!


In the New Year: 

I will:

                                          Love a little more,

                                                                     and yell a little less.

                                                                     Be a part of the solution,

                                                                     and not add to the mess.

                                                                     And I’ll do something different,

                                                                     like give my tongue a rest.

 I won’t:

                                                                                        Allow myself to worry,

                                                                       or add to someone’s stress,

                                                                       forget to smell the roses,

                                                                       or do anything but my best.

                                                                       Nor again, appear in public,

                                                                       unless I’m fully dressed!
