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

the opportunities hidden in each new day."
