CHATTER FROM THE MUSE

My New Years Resolution

I joined a group of bloggers and challenged myself to add something to my blog every day in January.  I am hoping that will get me in the habit of blogging so I can reach all of you more often.  I have been bad about keeping my blog new and fresh.  That's my New Years Resolution.  I will blog every day for 31 days starting right now.
 
A new year is a time to put the year we just completed behind us.  If it was a bad year, that is something you must do.  Living in the past is bad for you and everyone around you. 
 
If it was a good year, you must also put it behind.  You can tuck it into that warm sheltered part of memory where you can momentarily glance at it when you need a happy moment and move on. 
 
One of my joys I peek at again each year is a New Years Eve.  As a child my big thrill was to take two pan lids to the front porch, clang them together and yell "Happy New Year!" as loud as I could.  I had passed that ritual on to my children who had given it up many years before.
 
I left a party early that year to be with my children for the final countdown of the old year.  When I neared my drive way I saw two figures running down the middle of the street.  It was my daughter and my very pregnant daughter -in-law (supporting her belly with one hand), holding a pan lid with the other, clanging it against my daughter's pan lid.  They were running down the road yelling Happy New Year as loud as possible.
 
The mistakes, as well as the joys of the past become our teachers as we march into the unknown of a new year.  May the clanging of pan lids bring us all a year of joy to remember.  Happy New Year!

I'm curious to find out what blog system you are using? I'm experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any suggestions?
