New Year’s Resolutions!

Each year I find that I need to make some New Year’s Resolutions. Do you do this too? Do you keep all your resolutions?

This year I wrote several that I plan to keep.

Don’t eat any more cookies!
Keep smiling!

Here are some Resolutions.

Enjoy your family.

Sing every day about whatever pops into your head.
