One of the things I've learned from the big guy is to celebrate the new year all year. To be thankful for every new day that clears the horizon, to bless every minute we take a new breath. Birthdays are new years, as are anniversaries. Love can make a year new. So can tears. Gifts for any reason make a new year -- even if only for a moment. Hugs and kisses too.
Be kind to yourself. Love more than you think you're able. And have a happy New Year!
