Ring in the New Year!

New Year
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850

I love January 1st! It is a new start... a clean slate. It is a beginning and beginnings hold so much promise, so much potential! Last year is done - it has been swept out the door. It is not to be forgotten, though. No matter how tumultuous the year may have been, we should not forget it as there is much to be learned from the past.

But right now it is time to square our shoulders, face forward and look ahead!

..and I am certainly looking ahead at what this new year - this new decade! - holds.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
