It is still on this eve of a coming new year.
So before all the revelry and parties draw near,
Before champagne toasts, funny hats and good cheer,
Before to-do lists are written and resolutions are signed,
Before ringing out the old with an Auld Lang Syne,
Take time to think of all that is dear,
For now is the quiet before a new year.
In this quiet, I am taking time to reflect on the past year. Celebrating the successes, getting over the hurts, and remembering the little things that made me smile. Snowflakes falling off branches and making angels in the snow. A game of hide-and-go-seek when you think you’e too old.
How to find beauty in everyday items of life is sometimes all that I need to know.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
