Thought for the New Year

December 30, 2013 by Joan Nova in Holidays | 13 Comments

“… because that’s what new year’s is all about … getting another chance, a chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and to stop worrying about what if and start embracing what will be.

So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, and not just tonight but all year long.”

Claire Morgan (character played by Hilary Swank in movie “New Year’s Eve”, 2011)

Happy New Year to all my faithful and occasional readers. Know that your friendship is valued.
