In my lifetime, there have been few years I've been as happy to see over as this year. However, I have much to be thankful for. My children are all well and employed. My spouse and I are both reasonably healthy. My parents are, too.
In many respects, I have learned new things about myself this year. Some were good, some were not so good, but as that is the way of life, perhaps those things can be improved. I certainly hope so.
I look forward to the new year with hope and anticipation. I pray we all share in the blessings and rejuvenation of renewal. Happy New Year to you all, my friends. Happy New Year.
