Well, here we are at the end of another year. This past year, 2010, was supposedly, according to soothsayers, the high point of my existence here on planet earth. I am a Tiger. The Year of the Golden Tiger ends February 2, 2011, when we enter the Year of the Rabbit. Although this past year certainly has not panned out according to plan, it was a very good year. Still, who knows what additional good fortune may find me before February 2!
Here is a short list of my personal good fortune in 2010:
Everyone I love is healthy.
Attila has a full time job, we survive financially.
We purchased a wonderful little house in the city, near our kids and grand-kids.
I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions, as a rule. I know that I will continue to do my best at everything I put my hand to, and to treat others with respect and dignity. That is all I expect of myself in the New Year; that others treat me in the same way is all that I hope for in the New Year.
I worked today. Attila worked today. We are home together now, having driven home through the fog and rain. Warm and dry, with a hot dinner before us and an evening of good and quiet company, we will welcome in the New Year.
Happy New Year’s Eve to all!
