I love New Year’s because it brings in new hopes, new dreams and new beginnings, which are filled with forward thoughts.
I wear a frog ring because I love the symbolism. A frog can’t move its head to the left or the right and cannot look back — it can only look forward. That’s the philosophy I follow.
Memories do keep me going.
Some of my favorite people are no longer here, such as my husbands, my parents and my daughter Lara, all of whom had such a big impact on my life.
So I love to bring their pictures to my mind — images of things I did and where I was with them.
Traditionally, for our last edition of the year, we take a look back at our top stories.
But I’d also like to share thoughts I received about looking forward as we head into the new year.
Enjoy and may it be a year filled with good health, acts of kindness and joyous moments to relish for your memory bank!
Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with:
“Courage to get through the roller coaster of life.”
