Happy Blessings for the New Year!

Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.


~ Martin Luther



We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and its first chapter is New Year's Day.


~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce



Year's end is neither an end
nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom
that experience can instill in us.


~ Hal Borland


 
Drop the last year
into the silent limbo of the past.
Let it go, for it was imperfect,
and thank God that it can go.
 
~ Brooks Atkinson


 
An optimist stays up until midnight
to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up
to make sure the old year leaves.

~ Bill Vaughn



He who breaks a resolution is a weakling;
He who makes one is a fool.


~ F.M. Knowles



And remember.  No Drinking and Driving.  It is sooooooo not worth it! 



I never had a chance to meet my dad's parents because some drunk ass killed them in while using his car as a killing machine.  Sorry to be so blunt, but sometimes that's what it takes.


Ya'll be good now, ya hear? And I'll see you next year! Thank the Lord.



(Or at least better than this one!)
