New Year Wishes

It's that time of year again, when talk of "New Year's resolutions" fills the air.

Instead of resolutions, I'm going to offer some sage words of advice:

"Write your hurts in the sand, carve your blessings in stone."

I don't know who said this first, and I did google to try to find out, to no avail. Whoever came up with this lovely thought to get through the rough spots of life, I thank him or her. It's not easy to overlook hurtful comments or actions, but this reminds me to get over it and focus on what's truly important.

Happy New Year, everyone, and I truly hope your blessings outnumber your hurts.

Those are excellent words to live by; not easy, but excellent all the same. Certainly words that I want to pass on to my children.

All the best to you as well in 2007.
