At the dawn of the new year I’m filled with hope for what is to come,
and I have thankfulness in my heart for what has already passed.
I pray that I will keep my focus where it needs to be this year,
and that we’ll all have a year filled with joy, love and happiness.

Laughs of the Week
What is a New Year’s Resolution?
Something that goes in one year and out the other!

Why should you stand on just your left foot during the New Year’s Eve countdown?
So you start the New Year on the right foot.

A woman took an afternoon nap on New Year’s Eve. When she woke up, she told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year’s present. What do you think it all means?”
He replied, “Aha, you’ll know tonight!” At midnight, her husband handed her a small gift-wrapped present.
Excited, she opened it quickly, but was even more surprised: In it was a book titled The Meaning of Dreams.
