This is fantastic! We’re on the second day of the year and (as of this writing) we’ve had no major catastrophes in our house.
This is a good start to 2017 and a good sign for the year.
I recognize that there have been some not-so-great things happening in the world. But 2017 just got started; you can’t expect perfection and redirection overnight.
I have confidence.
I’ve decided that we (and by “we” I mean everyone in the universe—most of whom won’t pay any attention to me) should make 2017 better one day at a time. I’m not talking about world peace of curing urban blight or finding a good tasting non-caloric chocolate. Some things are best left to the experts.
I’m talking about the things we can impact.
Making someone smile.
Giving an unexpected compliment.
Holding a door.
Letting your mother watch something other than football on TV. (Oops, there I go with the crazy talk again.)
I’m pretty sure we can make a difference if we all try.
