“Another fresh new year is here . . .
another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
to love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
to live each day with zest . . .
to daily grow and try to be
my highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
once more to right some wrongs,
to pray for peace, to plant a tree,
and sing more joyful songs.”
William Arthur Ward author, educator, motivational speaker
