If you think about it, it’s kind of amazing how a new year begins. One minute it was the end of 2015, and a minute later it was 2016. There’s hope that old issues are resolved, and curiosity about what might happen next. There are things to remember. Maybe you had a good visit with a friend you don’t get to see very often. Maybe someone gave you not one, not two, but three books you’ve been wanting to read. And there are things you’ll never be able to forget, like the birth of your first grandchild.
Now there are 366 days waiting for you to show up (yes, 2016 is a Leap Year!). You’ll be expected to do the right things at the right time, even though you probably don’t know what will happen. There will be a few wonderful things that you never imagined, and a few miserable events as well.
True, most days will probably be normal, with not much happening except breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Personally, I’m hoping good things happen–for everyone–and that I can make excellent choices. I hope that if bad things happen, we’ll be able to deal with them.
A happy new year–really? I’m crossing my fingers!
