Looking Back

As 2021 comes to an end I sit here thinking about the past year and all that has happened. It would be easy for me to get depressed. However, I choose to look at all the good that happened instead. Here are just a few of them.

Health continues.
A milestone birthday (70) was celebrated.
Plenty of time to get lost in books.
Pets continue to brighten each day with their antics.
Yellow daffodils brightened spring mornings.

Nephew finished his residency.
Eye exam revealed no change since the last time.  Didn't need new glasses.
We tried new recipes. Some we will make again while others were tossed.

Yardwork kept me busy and got me outside for fresh air.
Even though we couldn't physically get together, Zoom helped us stay in touch.
After three years as president I can now just attend DCPASR Board meeting as a member.
Ready to take on 2022 and whatever it brings our way.

Hoping there was much in 2021 that brought you joy.  May you have a Healthy and Happy New Year!

    This must have taken some effort, considering how many words are in the wish and forming it into an acrostic. Or maybe on the contrary, since you were looking for good, you would have needed a longer poem. I like you positive spin and creative result. Wishing you joy and fun for the new year!

  6. Happy New Year! I always enjoy your poems.
