2009 better be better…

And what a year 2008 has been…The fresh 2009 better be better! I don’t remember people looking forward to retire a year (and their president) so eagerly.

The optimist in me hopes for:

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!
   William Arthur Ward

The realist in me screams back:

New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.James Agate
