New Leaf

A year has ended a year has begun,

Another moon followed by the sun.

Time for contemplations and a new start,

a change of mind and a change of heart.
What have we done that was so great?
Will another year reveal our true faith?
When the fireworks light up our sky,
the future will live and the past will die.

If it didn’t bring you joy
just leave it behind
Let’s ring in the new year
with good things in mind
Let every bad memory
that brought heartache and pain
And let’s turn a new leaf
with the smell of new rain.

Let’s forget past mistakes
making amends for this year
Sending you these greetings
to bring you hope and cheer
Happy New Year!

It’s really the small things in life that make it worth living, worth remembering, worth sharing.It’s these small slices of ordinary that we’ll all look back on when we’re get older and I know that sometimes (oftentimes) we forget that.  It is easy for us to get caught up in things that aren’t really all that important (in a big picture kind of way) and we need to be reminded every now and then to enjoy each moment we’ve blessed to have.

I hope you have a 2010 worth sharing, remembering and living with the people you love most.  There is joy and value to be had in even the most simple of experiences and tasks.

Happy New Year!
