I always have mixed feelings about the new year. I feel a slight sense of regret for all the things missed or actions not taken and feel a little panicked about the things I didn't accomplish in the past year. Then I remember that I have a whole new year ahead of me. It's like a second chance to reach goals, as well as, an opportunity to start fresh. To use a cliché, it's a blank canvas and I can draw whatever I want, preferably with colored pencils. :)
Nevertheless, when I think back on the past year I have to smile and deep down inside I know that I am blessed beyond belief! I have everything I need and more. God is good!
