And it’s a lovely, loving, kind, positive sentiment. And then I thought, what a wonderful way to approach a new year, especially after the one we’ve just had.So as the clock struck 12 this past New Year’s Eve I made sure that the very first step I took take with me were the things my mother made sure I had every time I’ve walked into a new home — only this time I carried them with me symbolically.If the actions aren’t there, the purpose wasn’t there, which means the intentions weren’t there either.
