At her suggestion, Patricia and I have started a new yearly tradition. On New Years Eve, we separately wrote down our hopes and goals for the coming year, folded, dated, and put them in a glass pickle jar. Yesterday, the first day of the new year, we each wrote down one good thing which happened to us and added them to the notes from New Years Eve. Tonight, we will again each right down something good that happened. We will do this each day throughout the year. Next New Years Eve, December 31st, 2016, we will go through all our notes and share them.
Also next New Year Eve, we will start over again—writing down our hopes and goals for 2017.
I look forward to doing this for many, many years to come.
