One month of 2019 has come and gone…

The calendar marches on

 New Year Is Upon Us…

We can only hope we learn something as each year goes by.

We age, of course, look for answers, seek wisdom, work, strive…

To be happy, healthy, and whole.

We want what’s best for our family and friends, truth be told.

We look to the past to plan for the coming days,

Not knowing how things can change in a thousand ways.

We want things to get better; we want to achieve great dreams…

But we can’t see the future or rewrite the past, it seems.

So we’re left with hope, a positive outlook, and our beliefs

To bring us joy, accomplishment, relief.

    1. Yes, me too. As children the passage of time seemed endless and slow like dripping wax. Now we blink our eyes and everything has changed. Even a happy medium would allow us to catch our breath before being hurled into the unknown again. 💜
