        Happy Chilly New Year!

        I've never been one for making resolutions for the New Year though it is a long-time tradition.  I was looking through an old photograph album of my Grandmother's this evening and came across an interesting tiny piece of paper and recognized her handwriting.

        Funny how sometimes there are coincidences like this.  Here it is almost the New Year of 2013.  And what I read was her New Year's resolution, written in 1916, when my grandmother was about 15 years old.  It's almost a hundred years old so this resolution was a real keeper. My Grandma was always the sweetest person, and now I know she worked hard at that.

        I think this is one of the best and longest kept New Year's resolutions ever.  I hope that this young girl's plans will spill over into all of our lives in the upcoming New Year. 



        1916

        Resolve:  That this New Years 1916 will find me a more kind, sweet, good girl to everyone than I've been in the past.
        That my life may be of some good use to all I meet in brightening their lives and helping to make everyone happy!

        No. 2 Resolve: That under no conditions may I forget those dearest to me.  Be considerate of their thoughts and feelings
        always and return in some way the kindness they show me.

        No. 3 Resolve: That above all what I do always should be for the love and happiness of my Darling Little Mother.
                                          _________________________________________

        May God help me to keep these resolutions always.

          Now i know why they call you "chilly" because that heirloom just gave me the chills it was so touching. It could be a Hallmark greeting card that's for sure. I guess it only goes to show that no matter how much time passes throughout history one of the most important things in life are still the same and never change.
