“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language

And next year’s words await another voice.

And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

--T.S. Eliot               

I am making an end to 2006 and a beginning to 2007! I have a new plan book, purse calendar, calendars for office, home, car, bedside and computer.

It is time to transfer information from the 2006 calendar to the one for this new year. As I fill in the birthdays, anniversaries, phone numbers, notes and appointments, I hold a complete year in my hands. The blank pages seem to tell me that each space holds blessings, challenges and excitement to fill them. It is a special time to reflect, plan, hope, dream and count my blessings.

Did I really survive cancer last year? It seems so long ago, but really only six months since the last radiation. I am still here. This morning, I even started a program of exercise and I feel good!

I have a grandson who graduated from college in December and is in Chicago to start a new year with a new job. This is the first day of the rest of his life!

You have the same opportunities for your life. If you want a change, you can have it. Just make the decision to do something. Don’t just sit there.

This also applies to our county and town. We can change and we can survive. We can be the best small county in the state. Many challenges will face us. Will we decide to work together, take part in making decisions and succeed, or talk on the street, but never where our voices will be heard?

I plan to change the “thy” to “my” in the following prayer and keep it before me in 2007.

It is my prayer for each of you.

        THY YEAR

        God bless thy year,

        Thy coming in, thy going out,

        Thy rest, thy traveling about,

        The rough, the smooth,

        The bright, the drear:

        God bless thy year.
