A fresh start

I took some time to clean house yesterday to get things ready for a brand new decade.

First, I tossed out all the stale stuff, swept away hurt feelings, resentment, fears and any weird twinges of sourness I found clinging like a dust ball to a far corner of the room.

Then I polished up the joy and moved it right up front where I can see it every day.

Friendship scrambled up there too, right next to family and gratitude. It felt good to clear a spot for them and I admired the view for a bit.

Then I got back to work, clearing clutter and organizing things. I dusted off sweet memories and enjoyed every moment of that chore.

I unwrapped a couple of new dreams and set them proudly next to my stash of hope and ambition.

Then I took a deep, cleansing breath and smiled.

It’s a great honor to welcome in the first day of a brand new decade and I’m glad I spruced up the place for the occasion.

Happy New Year! I hope you have plenty of room in your 2020 for all the best things life has to offer including laughter and love.

We rang in the New Year with these fine folks, as has become our lucky tradition.
