Happy New Year

While the challenges of 2022 were quite ….. well, challenging (let’s face it – I failed miserably), my New Year’s resolution is to stop complaining and boring people senseless about the things I can’t change. Let’s see how long that lasts.

My “friend”, Charles Swindoll – whom I’ve never met – says of the new year, “Challenges brought on by changes await us. We’ll be shoved out of our comfort zones and required to respond. We can do so positively or negatively, with hope and optimism or with resentment and pessimism”.

Last year I came across this saying, which I liked so much, I wrote it down.

Four things come not back: the spoken word; the speeding arrow; time past; the neglected opportunity.

While there aren’t too many speeding arrows flying around Cobar, I can definitely relate to the other three. Happy New Year and I’ll leave you with a couple of examples of Cobar’s community spirit.
