What a New Year means to me
– By Malika Jain
A New Year has a very special meaning for me and my family. My New Year resolution is to make sure that I have enough time to pray to God everyday to thank him for giving me so many wonderful things in life, such as good health, happiness, education, a good family and friends. A New Year also tells me to look back and learn from my mistakes and become a better person this year. It also means with each coming year I am growing older with an opportunity to enjoy the very many beautiful things in this world. Each New Year is making me grow older thus giving me a chance to learn more and do good deeds to others. I wish everyone a very happy 2011.
