New Year’s Resolutions

Our last year’s list is thrown away,
We trade it for another;
Our good intentions all come in--
One year and out the other.

Exactly. I love hearing everyone's ideas about those resolutions. You said it so succinctly! I saw a well-known person interviewed the other day about his resolutions. He said he has kept the lists for years, & looks back to see if there is anything he hasn't done yet. That's discipline I guess. Everyone counts their new years in different ways.

Our intentions are the threat that sew our years together?!?
