In my blog post on December 25th, I urged everyone to be with and enjoy their loved ones for the holiday. Wisewebwoman commented on that post. “Some of us are alone,” she wrote.
I did not mean to be insensitive to those who are alone-but-not-by-choice on Christmas. So wisewebwoman, my apologies to you and the many others for whom holidays are not easy. Thanks for calling me on it.
And that brings me to my New Year resolutions. In 2015, I want to tell people more often how much they mean to me. I want to laugh more. I want to complain less. I want to be more tolerant of people’s shortcomings and hope that they will be more tolerant of mine. I’d like to do something to make the world even just a little better.
Happy New Year.
