I don’t believe in resolutions.
Rarely do they come true.
That said, however, I’d like to offer
My New Year’s wish for you.
May your family stay healthy.
May all members be safe and sound.
May your gatherings bring joy and peace
With glad tidings all around.
May your food choices be yummy.
May you enjoy good health.
May you experience prosperity
And, whenever possible, great wealth.
May you worship as you wish.
May your prayers be answered each night.
May your kids go to sleep,
For once, without a fight.
May you reach as far as you can
In this brand-spanking new year.
May you keep your sense of humor
And all-around good cheer.
Finally, may you be the person
You’ve always wanted to be.
And know that whatever that looks like
It’s pretty much okay with me.
Happy New Year!
