New Year Wishes (2003)

Dear Friends
Day has come to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one. On this
day I wish you all the happiness in the new year and beyond.
I am sending you a picture.

This picture always make me think. These were two young and poor kids who after a
snowfall came out to play. They did not have enough warm clothing and
certainly no snow shoes or skates. But they were having great fun and trying
to skate with their simple shoes on this icy road. I took this photograph
nearly 15 years ago and still tells me that happiness is always inside us
and we just need to cherish these small moments of happiness which are in
abundance around us.
Think about what you have and how you are blessed instead of complaining
about what you don't have.
Have a Happy New Year.
