        Time for New Year Resolutions! I have heard a few and made a few. After some recent encounters with animals, I am determined to be more aware of their needs as I am able. A little observation can save a lot of strife in our animal kingdom as well as in our neighboring friends and family.
        Over the recent Christmas holiday, friends showed me and my family unexpected kindness and generosity for which I am very thankful. Just a word or deed can make such a difference in lives. I want to pass it on.
