End of the Year Meme

I copied this meme from Modobs in “What’s love got to do with it?” It sounded like fun and she did not direct it towards anybody particular, so I decided to take it over.

1. What did you do in 2008 that you’d never done before?Visited Naples at least.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?I don’t have any idea what I promised last new year – and I have made some again and probably going to forget those too.

Smile when your heart is aching
even though it is breaking
when there are clouds in the sky
you’ll get by
if you smile through your fear and sorrow
smile and maybe tomorrow
you’ll see the sun is shining through
for you
