#spiritsays: Feeling positively jaunty now that the commotion of last night’s booms, bangs, and clangs was over, Dixie’s heart had settled but her eyes were still seeing stars. She loved new beginnings, and the fresh powder covering the lawn this morning looked just like a clean slate. Springing into action, as she was gleefully hopping across the yard, she heard laughter and her resolution was made. This year she would bring more joy to herself and others. She knew that was one resolution she was bound to keep.
