Here’s hoping for a good 2013. As the Christmas season ends and a new year starts, my hope is that more and more people will have the opportunity to look back on the past and learn and look ahead to the future with, well, hope.
While there is nothing necessarily significant about the date we note on the calendar, there is something useful about the change from one year to the next. The end of one year and the beginning of a new one sets down markers for progress and development. A little time and reflection can prompt some good thinking about life and living it well, and better than in the past.
That’s been an enjoyable part of these past few days for me. I’m looking forward to 2013.
