Happy New Year

While searching for either a good quote or a poem to go along with today's post I spotted the perfect words in, believe it or not, the comment section.

We hasten to ring in the New Year, not knowing what it brings.
Along with happiness, are kisses, and all those other things.
Cheerfully we give a toast, with family and friends.
We make our resolutions, and swear to make amends.
Sometimes we forget to say, what's really in our heart.
I suppose it's hard for some to know where to start.
Be thankful for the chance, to start another year.
Hold your loved ones close, be there to lend an ear.
Reach out your hand, and give to those in need.
Become a better person, make that your dying creed.
Take a good look back, at how life was before.
Then honestly make a promise, to make it so much more.
Be kind to others, and be gentle in your ways.
Then watch as GOD rewards you, with many happy days.
