“Hope springs eternal,” Mama used to say. 

Enjoy nature

I’ve been watching my friends’ Facebook posts and the Twitter posts of whoever happens by. Many are condemning this year as a total loss and hoping the new year will be a magical time where only what they want will happen 24/7/365. 

Enjoy family

I’ve watched people who have had a good year and said so be roundly criticized by the “This year sucks” crowd.

I’ve lived long enough to know that every year contains both good and bad and hope really does spring eternal.

Wishing you all health, peace, and prosperity for the coming year.

The new year stretches before us
