Another year is coming to a close,
It seems to have gone by so quickly,
So much has happened, and so little has changed in some ways,
The children are getting older, and in some ways are still so very young.
I hope they are malleable enough to become successful.
You take pictures of ducks in the snow, and I hope this coming year you will rediscover the beauty,
Because it makes you so happy. Which in turn makes us happy.
