"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man." Benjamin Franklin
I can always count on Benjamin Franklin to provide me with sane and rational quotes with respect to life. What a practical man even if the word man should really read as " person ". The new year rapidly approaches and although I have not made any resolutions and certainly can not remember any from last year, I sit here and think that the past year has been a good one. I have laughed and loved and lived and created. I have immensely enjoyed all my days - even the challenging ones. I remain grateful that I have a life and blessed to be doing what I love and calling it work.
For the world, I am wishing for peace, medicine for the sick, food for the hungry, care for the neglected, love for all of us. I am wishing that we all treat each other with kindness and respect, keeping our good humor intact.
For my family and co workers, I want a year of health, prosperity and joy. I can ask for nothing else, but can be grateful for all. Happy New Year!! With love, Lois
