Welcoming New Years

New years are new beginnings!  They must be welcomed with positivity and good vibes!  There must be noise, coins, and foods!  Papa is in charged with the noise by clanging frying pans, mama is in charged with the coins by viva, throwing coins all over the house, while I’m the boss in the kitchen.  Everybody in the compound is invited to have media noche in our house, may they be immediate family, boarders, transients, or long-time tenants.

But people come and people go.  If one left, another one arrives.  The important thing is, we are one in celebrating the new year!

But being one is sometimes unattainable for communal living because we are different as individuals.  Sometimes, some of us raise voices at each other for disagreements on things but we do resolve conflicts easily.

And mind you, there were never wars between all of us because we are all peace-loving citizens.

Plus, we have God as the center of our family that binds us altogether in one love.

Eventhough that now, some had gone out of the country, we still celebrate new year together through Skype or Ovoo.

For it is always a great thing to be in oneness as we welcome every coming year of our lives.

Moreover, great things start from great beginnings!  Let us all start afresh with more love, peace, and harmony!
