So Long, Farewell...
The year 2011 has definitely had it's ups and downs. I sit here on the first day of 2012 reflecting on the things that have happened, good and bad, and wonder about starting anew.
Why is it that people wait until the end of a year to start things anew? This has always bothered me. Every day is an opportunity to reevaluate yourself, goals, attitudes, and start over.
God provides this opportunity every day through Sacraments, love, forgiveness, and the whole reason Jesus died on the cross for us and our sins.
So, for 2012, I will try to remember to wake up every morning remembering the new opportunities for a new beginning daily.
