Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Happy New YearOne of my memories from years-ago is seeing Father Time and Baby Time as one year ended, and the next started. I can’t say that I have seen it recently. Did it someway fall to political correctness?

I sat Thursday night as the clock neared midnight, considering the past year’s events and wondering what the new year holds in store.

Past year

My wife and I were blessed this year:

  • We are healthy compared to many others our ages.
  • Our son’s and my daughter’s families are healthy.
  • Those with jobs are working, a true blessing.
  • Lockdown has limited our expenditures and improved our finances.
This year

What do we hope for this year?

  • My wife and I hope to remain healthy.
  • Our children and their families to stay healthy.
  • Those working will strive to remain so.
  • Even with the new vaccines, lockdowns will remain in effect for months over concern about a new strain of COVID.

These are the things I mused while waiting for midnight—nothing elaborate or complicated, just thankful for my health and a loving family.


Resolutions for the new year:

  • Work to keep my health and find the new year.

That’s it. No resolution to drink less or stop smoking. These would be false resolutions since I quit both years ago. No, living to see 2022 is a good one to make.
