    2012 was a very difficult year for me. I am so looking forward to the “clean slate” of a new year! Excited for what God has in store for my family and me!

  2. Pam Webb Kight

    A time to forget the many mistakes I have made in the past and move forward to be there for my family and friends. I have a large loving family. They all have big hearts. We were raised to always try to help those in need. Everywhere you look there is always someone who needs a helping hand. I am going to try to do better this year with my time than I did in 2012. I want to tell people about our Lord Jesus Christ. I know him as my Savior but there are so many that do not. If I can tell one person and they would accept Him as their Savior that would be keeping them from spending eternity in hell.

  3. Davis Bush

    I want to be the first post to wish everyone a safe and sane and happy new year.
    May family and friends bring you joy every day. May God shed his light upon you.
    It is our duty to overcome difficulties that life brings us and see the great things that are there just for viewing. Stand up and discard the doom and gloom prevalent in the media and be the one who brings happiness. The new year will be wonderful.. watch out-
    I may shake your hand or hug you ” just because”

  14. yarden amsalem

    my name is Yarden and I am a freshman student at Dowling college, NY. I came all the way from Israel to play collegiate volleyball but unfortunately, I got into a bad car accident a month after the seasonhas begun, and actually not have been playing ubtil today.for 2013 I wish to be after the hard and long rehab process so I could put this life trauma behind me and go back to play my favorite in the world.

  15. Melissa Cunningham

    The contemplation of the future is never far from one’s mind. As 2013 dawns, I look forward to: embracing life the best that I can. I hope to focus more on positive, and less of negativity. I look forward to being content with what I have, and learning that being humble is one of the greatest assets a person could possess. I have learned that the love of family and friends is far better than riches of material worth- so in 2012 draws to a close- I look forward to spending time with my Earthly Riches– All the family and friends that I dearly love. …Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  16. Jason Cunningham

    In 2013 I look forward to many things. My son will be turning 13, and I can not wait to see him embrace and embark on new adventures as a teenager. He is my greatest blessing, and my life has truly been worthwhile, because of him. So in 2013 I look forward to seeing him change and grow, and he walks the crazy path to adulthood.

  17. Katrina Willard

    I am looking forward to 2013. I’m ready to start 10th grade and work hard to do all my homework and writing assignments. I’m also looking forward to having another year with a great church family. My cousin also is going to have her first baby in March. :)

  19. Kristen

    First of all, I just wanted to say merry Christmas everyone! In 2013, I really just want one thing. I want my family together. We have been separated for so long now. I miss them so much. So I hope and pray God will bring us back together again. I also wish that things can be more peaceful in this world. There’s been so much violence. Its really sad. That’s really all I wish for.

  20. Jaime lassiter

    Well i have learned you can NEVER say next year will be better! So i just want to say, i have been tested a lot this year and i think something big must be coming. I cant say i am ready for it yet, but i hope i am… i know things happen for a reason and this week my step daughter and i have had some really great moments, in spite of her losing her mom and her dad being in the hospital. We have hugged and talked more than we ever have! It has been really nice! I would love for our relationship to keep blooming! She knows now, that i really do care and am here for her, so here is to a new year!!!!

  21. Randy A

    I hope the new year will bring a world in which children to go to school and play outside without fear, a world full of peace, a world where no child goes to bed hungry, a world where child abuse is non existent, a world where people are nice to each other (despite their differences).

  25. Richard Holt

    I hope for 2013 to remain on the right side of the grass. I have enjoyed a good life with an awesome family and great friends. I hope to spend all of 2013 enjoying them. I am sure there will be some adversity as always in life. But, Hey evebody can still have a great life. Give me my family to love me and my friends that will be there no matter what.
    That’s all you really need and I hope not only me but everybody gets this for 2013.



  27. Barbara

    I hope and plan for more opportunities to share/teach NVC (Nonviolent Communication) so that more people have the skills and knowledge to have more harmony in their lives and more peace in their hearts; to help us to meet our own beautiful human needs, and to see how even painful actions others take are attempts to meet their beautiful human needs.

  28. rosareee

    I hope for me in 2013 a better year with my health. I have had a lot of medical issues in 2012 and gained weight back plus more that I had loss. I want to be heathier. I was born 2 and 1/2 months premature and have always had immune and health problems. Two years ago I found out I had a hole in my heart. I had a heart cath to check it out, The Dr said it is okay for now but if I don’t lose weight I will need to have this surgery and it is risky. So for 2013 I want better health, to lose weight and not have to have heart surgery.

  29. Cass Calogera

    2013 promises to be such an exciting year for me! The last few years have been tough career-wise. However with strength and determination, I’ve made it through and will be finishing up my masters degree in health administration. Hopefully I will be able to help others navigate the waters of what can be a complicated health care system. My dream is to build a career that will mean something after I retire, and doing work that benefits others is where it starts. Another goal of mine is to become better with managing my money. By switching over to Pure Talk for my cell phone service, I already have a head start!

  30. Gaurav

    Long list of Hopes
    Firstly and most important want the better health for whole world. May God give some wisdom and the world can find some peace.

    For me I want to be more healthy and want to spend money to give my nears and dears more happiness

  31. Nancy Robins

    This year has been my worst ever, so one side of the brain says “It’s got to be over” Life has to get better!” I was self employed but new property owners had only greed in there hearts and took the business away. 55 years old is not a good time to have to job search, and with the economy in the shape it’s in, It looked hopeless. Than I look around and know I’m not the only one that has it bad. It really scares me to think that 2013 can actually be so much worst.
    So do I look forward to 2013, It scares the heck out of me.
