Harriet's World

By HARRIET BISHOP

Well, here we go. It's another new year. I don't know about you people, but I have spent the required time (what ever that might be) reflecting on the past year 2003. I haven't made any New Year's resolutions because I never keep them. So making them seems futile to me and just makes me feel negative about myself when I don't keep them. Thus, I don't make them.

In all my reflections about this past year, I surprised myself. I found that I was grateful for it. Not just the good times. There were many. The hard times too. All the trials. I learned from them. I hope I don't have to repeat them. I try to learn from each one of them something so they don't feel so futile. I've counted my blessings and cannot remember the bad things that happened. I'm happy my memory is slipping a little. I am old enough to only want to remember the good things and let the negative ones slip away. I wish no revenge. Just glad I lived through them and am still here.

When all is said and done, I realize that the bottom line is that I am grateful I am still alive, that I have shelter from the storm, that I have heat in my house from this bone chilling snow and cold. I am happy my needs are met. That I have a God that I can worship if I choose to and the rest is just fringe and dressing.

So as this year 2004 begins, this is my world. Until next time remember "Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today."
