Bonne Année 2013
I didn't stay up late enough to watch the ball drop in New York City, but I did hear someone in my neighborhood lighting firecrackers. I received a couple of midnight text messages to let me know that 2012 had ended and 2013 had begun.
I hope that the New Year brings happiness and peace. I hope that my family and friends stay healthy. I hope that our elected officials decide to work together, regardless of party affiliation, for the good of the American people. I hope that there are no more senseless murders of innocent people, young or old. I hope that our president stays safe during his second term and is able to accomplish what he has set out to do. I hope that the world laughs more and cries less. I hope that we take the time each day to do something nice for someone else without recognition or reward. I hope that no children go to bed hungry or afraid. I promise myself that I will get in better shape, eat healthier, work on my book, and be a better mom, wife, daughter, teacher, and friend. I will take more deep breaths and have more patience. I look forward to a new beginning.
Bon appétit and Bonne Année 2013!
