As you look toward the New Year, what it is that you want, are hoping for, would like to have happen? An early chance to get the COVID-19 vaccine? Renewed opportunity to travel? A project that had to be put on hold? Getting to visit in groups once again? Going to a restaurant and getting to eat indoors? No longer standing in line to even get into a store to shop? Are you thinking about New Year’s Resolutions or are they not on your agenda? Actually, I make two resolutions on New Year’s Day, the same ones every year. They go like this:
Arlene, you are alert to new brain-health research and implement anything that is healthier.
Arlene, you do random
acts of kindness that make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Sometimes it only takes one contact, one act of kindness, one word to alter the course of a person’s life. That has happened to me and I like to pay forward the good things that I have experienced. Being part Irish, I enjoy stories about Ireland. I recall reading about one encounter that changed the life of an Irish lad. It was in a piece entitled ‘Clarke's Prize’ by Carl McRoy.
