As another year comes to an end, many of us are taking inventory of all the New Years resolutions we made at this time last year. What we did and didn't do, our achievements and disappointments. Common resolutions to lose weight, travel more, quit smoking, exercise, eat healthier, get more sleep, spend less.... If you're at all like me, you will be carrying over a few of last years resolutions to start anew, of course this time with more determination. But as we count down the final hours to begin 2017, this article from yesterday's New York Times puts auld lang syne in perspective. So Let's add just one more resolution to our list that could improve our loved ones overall health. The gift of "time" and making it possible for our elderly seniors to socialize with their meaningful friends. Keep in mind that like exercising this one bears repeating year after year.
