A new year

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a new year.

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding

One resolution I have made, and try to always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
~John Burroughs

This year, I resolve:
  • To be more generous than ever with my time, talents and resources
  • To rid my life of clutter and excess
  • To write and read more (i.e., to watch less television)
  • To improve my skills every time I climb or boulder
  • To be kind to everyone who crosses my path
  • To rise above the little things 
  • To be grateful in all situations
For this blessing, I am grateful.
