Another fresh new year is here....

               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  

    "Cheers to a new year
     and another chance to get it right!"
                                                      -                                                           ---Oprah Winfrey

"Be always at war with your vices,
at peace with your neighbors
 and let every new year find you a better man"
quoted in Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac, December 1755

"Approach the new year with resolve to find
the opportunities hidden in each new day."
 Michael Josephson,

These words of wisdom inspire me to start a positively,

 Have a rockin' New Year!
Love, Linda
