The New Year is here, and I am about as excited as the children are at Christmas! There is no such thing in life as a reset button, although there have been many times when I have very fervently wished that there was, but to me, the start of a new year is one of the closest things to it. I heard someone say once, in regard to the focus of effort, that it's easier to give birth than to resurrect the dead. That being the case, I am turning my back on any disappointment I have felt during the past year and walking forward to meet the new one with a wide smile on my face, happily anticipating all the wonder that the birth of the new year will bring and, even more, all that I will create in it. God willing, there is an entire year stretching out as far as the eye can see, as grand as the imagination can render, as beautiful, happy and filled with laughter and contentment as the heart can dream.
2012 is the year! I hope it is the one in which your life is filled with the most success and happiness yet!
Warmest Wishes for a Bright and Prosperous New Year,
