Sometimes it's just not possible to be ready for something to happen. But it does, anyway.

New years are often like that for me. I'm not ready to relinquish the old year, but there it goes. I'm not ready to take on the challenges and adventures (I hope) of the next year, but here it is, sitting in my lap.

Today Thursday's Child is looking at what other people think about the old and the new. And we're going to read some wise words from people you'll recognize. Enjoy!

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. Oprah Winfrey

Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. Helen Keller

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Hal Borland

All of us every single year, we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives. Steven Spielberg


I won't be awake at midnight Saturday to welcome 2017. But I'll be wishing you the best year ever! 


  1. It is the first time in memory that I have been this eager to see a year end! Happy New Year, Judith.
