Happy New Year’s wishes and a poem from Rutledge

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and were able to to spend it with the ones you love. As 2009 draws to a close, I look back on all the blessings I’ve gotten this year- more than I ever deserve and certainly more than I expected. I’m sure you could say the same. I hope we’re all thankful for all our blessings.

I found this cute poem about New Year’s Resolutions and thought I’d share it with you. Happy New Year!

My New Year’s Resolutions

I will not throw the cat out the window or put a frog in my sister’s bed

I will not tie my brother’s shoelaces together nor jump from the roof of Dad’s shed

I shall remember my aunt’s next birthday and tidy my room once a week

I’ll not moan at Mum’s cooking (Ugh! fish fingers again!) nor give her any more of my cheek.

I will not pick my nose if I can help it, I shall fold up my clothes, comb my hair,

I will say please and thank you (even when I don’t mean it) And never spit or shout or even swear.

I shall write each day in my diary, Try my hardest to be helpful at school

I shall help old ladies cross roads (even if they don’t want to) And when others are rude I’ll stay cool.

I’ll go to bed with the owls and be up with the larks And close every door behind me

I shall squeeze from the bottom of every toothpaste tube And stay where trouble can’t find me.

I shall start again, turn over a new leaf, leave my bad old ways forever

shall I start them this year, or next year shall I sometime, or …..?
