Drink a cup of kindness

by Patricia D

I’m going to be lazy today.  I’ve had a lot of holiday cheering the past few weeks: getting ready, driving up and down I-75 (do you understand how far away Michigan is?) and contemplating un-decorating my home so that it looks much more  “January is the Coldest Month of the Year” and less “Life’s a Neverending Rush of Fun.”  I’ll be honest–I’m tapped out on creativity at the moment, having expended most of this month’s allotment trying to keep the whole Seasonal Lying to a Small Child thing going.  Anyway, I’m not up to a clever post full of great information so let me leave you with these exhortations:

Read to a child (a lot) in the new year.

Read at least one thing outside your area of interest in the new year.

Make good use of your library card (in the new year) because it is the best credit card out there.

Finally, I will leave you with this:

It’s been around a bit, I know, but it never fails to give me goosebumps, bring tears to my eyes AND make me grin like a fool all at the same time.  I can’t think of a better state of mind to be in as we say “buh-by” to 2011.

Best wishes for joy and prosperity in 2012.
