And So…

Another year is nearly here. Another year is nearly past. Like many of you I am tempted to make a New Years resolution list and yet, I do not think I will. I make enough lists in my daily life that every day is a New Year. “Today I will: clean the cat box, walk the dog, organize my desk, go to the gym, make a healthy dinner.” Sometimes those lists get resolved and other times they happen another day. I do not need a New Year to make another list. And yet, it is a New Year and we are so tempted to set ourselves forward into it with a resolve to do better, get healthier, and change our ways. But do you need a list?

Over Christmas, while visiting Devin’s family, his mother handed me a tattered slip of newspaper that her father had given to her the day previous. It read:

“If he earns your praise, bestow it;

If you love him, let him know it,

Let the words of true encouragement be said,

Do not wait till life is over,

And he’s underneath the clover,

For he cannot read his tombstone when he’s dead.”

“I’m not sure where he found it, but I have decided that this is my New Years Resolution,” she said. I cannot help but agree that it is possibly the most important resolution anyone can make any day of the year. Family or friends. And it does not require a list to start. 🙂

Happy New Year everyone. 🙂
