“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,    To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”   ~       William Arthur Ward

Here’s wishing all the peace, love and joy in the world to my friends, family, acquaintances old and new – may the New Year bring everything your heart desires and let us all count our blessings for the life that has been given to us. Happy Holidays!                                                                                                                                                                 ~Maria
