I learned a long time ago that any day God sees fit to let you crawl out of bed in the morning is a good time to resolve to make changes in your life.
That’s why I’v never put too much stock in New Year’s resolutions. I’ve resolved in March to lose weight. I’ve resolved in July to exercise more. I’ve resolved in September to be a gentler spirit.
But somehow Jan. 1 always signals the advent of a clean slate, a time to start (or finish) something.
