New Years Resolutions

Well, it's time for making those New Years Resolutions and here is mine.
I resolve to make no resolutions this year.

However, I do have a few ideas that I plan to stash in my little pea brain that will affect my life and the lives of others.

I will continue to write my stories about growing up in the hills of Tennessee in the 50's and 60's. My children and grandchildren will never experience those kinds of adventures so it is important to me to document those events for them as a way of conecting with their ancestors.

Another project I would like to do this year is Project 365 or Photo A Day. You can document your life by taking a photo a day. At the end of a year you can remember what you were doing on any given day.

About two and one half years ago when the Grand girls first got this Placostomous he was so small he could hide anywhere in the tank and you really had to look to find him. It's hard to miss him these days. Here is my Photo of the Day.

I also found this poem which I thought was a great one.

Kindness, can be shown in many ways,
a gift you buy, or debts you pay.

A sweet word to someone blue, or just
listening, to someones point of view.

Acts of kindness, should come naturally
to you.Never noticing what you've done,
until its through.

Flowers picked right from the yard, or
something you've worked for, very hard.

Just taking time to let a loved one know,
just how far, for them you'll go,

A complete stranger, in dangers way, your
act of kindness they've no need, to repay.

Whether its something your asked to do, or
just because, you wanted to.

You never know when you may be in need, of
a sweet and kindly deed.

When an act of kindness comes your way, it
brightens up a gloomy day.

If the chance should come your way, show an
act of kindness today
