I love the New Year! It’s a time to turn over a new leaf. Focus on being the best person we can be. Just like the Chinese Name their New Years, I’d like to claim 2012 to be the year not of the rabbit or the dragon… …but of the Gracious Girl! As we make our New Year’s Resolutions, let’s add a gracious spring in our step. Something practical, doable and achievable. Let’s face it: Sometimes with our resolutions we can bite off more than we can chew. So this year, my friends, what will it be? Resurrect the thank-you note, add a little bit more green in our living or perform a random act of kindness once a month for a stranger. These are just a few ideas off the top of my head. What are some others that you can think of?
