"This is a time for reflection as well as celebration.
As you look back on the past year & all that has taken place in your life,
Remember each experience for the good that has come of it, & for the knowledge you have gained.
Remember the efforts you have made & the goals you have reached.
Remember the love you have shared & the happiness you have brought.
Remember the laughter, the joy, the hard work, & the tears.
And as you reflect on the past year, also be thinking of the new one to come.
Because most importantly, this is a time of new beginnings...& the celebration of life."
