Renew Year’s Day, 2011

Who do you think of on special days?

A seasonal verse I have found to be poignant over the years–and more so in the last few years–is this one, which you have probably seen on many Christmas cards. Think of it more deeply and purposefully this year and spend some time in special remembrance.

Never a Christmas morning,
Never the old year ends,
But someone thinks of someone,
Old days, old times, old friends.

Who does your mind turn to on Christmas morning and on New Year’s Eve? What memories do you especially cherish? Who is thinking about you? Find ways in the coming year to make more memories, touch the lives of more people and appreciate and enjoy your life more than ever.

Spend a few moments remembering all the significant people who have contributed to making you who you are. Then, make 2011 a Renew Year in ways that are noticeable and that you can feel in every aspect of your life.  If you find it difficult to do it for yourself, do it in honor of those you are remembering more than ever right now.



New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights. – Hamilton Wright Mabie
