Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
We've waved goodbye and said hello to many an old and new year with these precious friends. I hope we're still doing it when we're 75.
I can hardly think of a sweeter way to welcome New Year's Day than in jammies with our oldest and dearests, and with our favorite little 2-year old miss.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
