Happy New Year!

Times Square with all its cheer
cannot revive a year.
And no amount of pique
will slow a passing week.
No force on earth can stay
the closing of a day.
So give in…Count some sheep.
The dawn will keep.

Oh, how I wish we could keep time from flying sometimes! My baby is turning 5 next week and my heart is breaking a little. Sigh.........

So (alarmingly) true. I get nervous when I can account for every weekend until April. Trying to live in the moment.........

What wonderful way to end the year!

karen said...

Just what I needed to read tonight! I've spend way too much time this past week trying to cram way too much into every day. Time to slow down and get reasonable. We will be in your neck of the woods this next Thursday the 16th until Tuesday afternoon. The only evening I have to work is Thursday for the registration reception. Other than that, evenings are free. I hope we'll be able to see you and Dave while we're there!
