We hope you had a great New Year's Eve party--great and safe for you and everyone else.
For some, today is a day to recuperate from last night.
For others, today is a day to get a fresh start and make plans for 2019, maybe set goals, and dream big dreams.
Whatever you think about the first day of the New Year, and however you spend it, we hope the day is the first of many wonderful days ahead for you.

"As always, my first resolution is to make time for my family. It’s not always easy.
"Between my writing, my sons and daughters-in-law working, and school for the grandchildren, we often have to sneak an outing or a family meal.
"However, as with everything family related, the effort is worth it. I wish the same time and happiness for everyone during the coming year."

"I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. Instead, since I like a positive spin, I make two lists.
"On the first one I write down all the great things that happened in the past year so I can celebrate my memories of happy times and my accomplishments, large and small.
"The second list contains all the things I am looking forward to in the upcoming year. It’s fun to look back on that one at the end of the year and see what surprises there were. And of course, all this list writing is better with a glass of Champagne."
