There’s something about a New Year that fills me with hope. Winter plunges us into darkness and cold, but with each day forward, there’s more light to give us cheer. I know the warmth of this recent burst won’t last, but for me, I’m reminded that even in the harshest of times, there are moments of relief and reasons to smile.
As I scrolled through reams of emails, deleting most, and marking many as junk, I found this lovely little prayer to start my new year. I think I’ll post it where it can be a reminder for me that every day is the beginning of a new year. It’s just convention that makes us start counting at January 1.
