Well it's that time of year when we contemplate about all the things that brought us joy and sadness.
On the joy side, it would be the recalling of all the happy times and reflecting upon those who really count, our loved ones and our friends. For these are the ones who have enriched our lives.
For me it's when I ponder those who mean a lot to me and I immediately think of all of you and all the fun we had last year celebrating Madison 50th Celebration.
On the sad side for me it is the lost of so many of our love ones and friends, and opportunities lost.
So as a fresh and bright new year arrives, I want you all to know I feel so privileged and grateful that you're my friends.
My Happy New Year wish for you
Is for your best year yet,
A year where life is peaceful,
And what you want, you get.
A year in which you cherish
The past yearís memories,
And live your life each new day,
Full of bright expectancies.
I wish for you a holiday
With happiness galore;
And when itís done, I wish you
Happy New Year, and many more.
Thanks for being one of the reasons I had a great 2015.
Happy New Year!
