New Year Note

Dear New Year, 

We have just met. You and I on the same dance floor. Mixed beats and mixed drinks. 

We are not a we yet, but I know you're going to ask me out and I'm going to accept. But, first let's set some ground rules, after all I get the feeling we are going in the same direction. 

1. Let's try to be kind and grant each other and others patience and grace. Yes, I know this is a lot to ask. But, it'll be worth it because it's the only thing we can ever guarantee. Because it's our choice to do so. And you, me and everyone we know are in this together. I think it'll help. 

2. Let's do everything we can to remember the first rule.
