Here it is, the day after Christmas. Once again another Christmas has gone by. All the company has left and all is quiet and I am feeling a little sad.
It’s always so much fun when the family gets together, even if it is just a few hours here and there over several days. We eat a lot, laugh a lot and just have a really good time.
Before settling into the routine of our everyday lives, we must celebrate the coming of a new year. It is hard to believe that in less than a week 2018 will be here.
What will the new year hold for all of us? I always plan on it being better than the year before and it usually is. Of course there are always some bumps along the way but always things that can be handled.
I don’t make New Year Resolutions per say, but I do sort of make plans for some things I want to accomplish in the coming year. Sometimes they materialize and sometimes they don’t. If my plans go astray, well, guess those plans weren’t for me, but everything seems to always turn out for the best.
Wonder how the concept of making New Year resolutions started. Maybe people have been doing it for hundreds of years. New year, a new beginning, makes sense.
Anyway, my plans for 2018, as it does most years, is first to lose some weight and exercise more. I’m sure most people have the same goal. Then my primary goal is to start ridding myself of all the stuff I have that I really don’t need. Wish me luck with this one, because sometimes it is really hard for me to part with some things, even though I may not have seen or used them in several years. Memories you know.
Also in my 2018 plans is to continue praying for peace in our world. Imagine the entire world bathed in peace and love for everyone and everything. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?
Happy New Year everyone. May all your plans and resolutions be realized and 2018 will be the most wonderful year yet.
Until next time,
