Horse? At least it is according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. For us I’m not sure what it’s the year of. The girl was born in the year of the Sheep. He’s a rabbit…and I, apparently, am a rooster. I don’t know how the Chinese astrologers predict we shall fare this year but I think it sounds like a very odd zoo. Or a holding pen for Christmas lunch (which I say with some reluctance as a vegetarian!). There is a new animal joining the affray. He’s a monkey so that should add some fun into the mix. Chinese zodiac signs aside, happy new year.
What does the year hold for you and your dear ones? Are you looking ahead with hope or trepidation? In our home I think it will be a little from Column A and a little from column B. Changes are afoot which could well be marvellous once I get past the idea that I hate change. So, little steps at a time, I hope to walk forward as calmly as I can.
Now over to you. I would love to start the year with hope in the air so please share if you are able to. What is your great hope for this new year? My high school science teacher had a saying “I hope you get what you deserve!”. He was always a bit smug that many students didn’t realise it worked both ways. I shall be somewhat gentler. I hope you get what you wish for.
