Happy New Year, friends near & far!
I am ever-so-grateful for the gifts you have given me.
I carry them in my pockets, and I smile when I come across them --
(though they do get a little smudgy next to old tissues and wrappers and rocks I'm asked to hold on to).
They remind me of you -- and how fortunate I truly am.
And now I'm off to watch It's a Wonderful Life. Because it really is.
