I just had a nice quiet lunch by myself.  I do this from time to time to gather my thoughts and relax.  I started to think about New Years and why we make such a big deal out of it.  Most people that are out and about on New Year’s Eve,  are out for a big party.  Then New Years Day is full of football and making New Year’s resolutions, which are usually, broke by the middle of January.  As you might be able to tell I have never been a big fan of this holiday.  I spent most of my younger years waitressing.  The tips may be good that night, but that was about it.  There were a few years I truly enjoyed New Years Eve.  I was with a group of friends who played games and laughed.  We then sat around and had a meaningful conversation.  We asked two questions.  The first was, “What happened this last year that changed your life?”  The second question was, “What do you want to see changed in the year to come?”  These questions often brought tears of joy and sorrow.  They also brought hope.  Take time to ask yourself these two questions.  For me the life changing event was becoming a grandmother.  This brought on emotions and a love that I never experienced.  Holding this new born baby and knowing that all I have to do is love him.  It brings a peace to my heart.  The second question is harder for me.  But If I was going to change one thing, it would be to write more blogs.  I have a tendency to think that I don’t have brilliant idea to write I should be quiet.  I am going to try and write at least once a month if not twice a new blog.  So what has made a change in your life and what do you want to see change this next year.
