Those chances to be angels...

It is a new start, a new year...
a chance to empty the bowl and begin again.
To fill our time & our lives with what matters.

It isn't the thing you do, dear,
It's the thing you leave undone
That gives you a bit of heartache
At setting of the sun.
The tender word forgotten,
The letter you did not write,
The flowers you did not send, dear,
Are your haunting ghosts at night.
Those little acts of kindness
So easily out of mind,
Those chances to be angels
Which we poor mortals find---
Margaret E. Sangster

I wish you peace, hope & good will in this new year.
May we each find the better angel in us.

Happy New Year!
