What is your New Year’s Resolution?

Ah, this is much easier than last week’s question! We have a longstanding family tradition of making resolutions for the new year. My wife taught me of this, and after her passing, Bergil and I continued to keep the tradition in her memory.

I encourage my son to keep his resolutions practical, and not to feel badly if he fails. The only true failure is in being afraid to try, I like to remind him. And speaking of Bergil, it’s been quite a change for the boy moving to Ithilien from Minas Tirith. He’s bright and smart, and continues to help out the Rangers in a thousand small ways, much as he aided the Houses of Healing during the war.

My resolution then, is to help my son adjust to his new surrounds, and thrive in them. I certainly would enjoy spending more time with him. He has eleven years now, and grows so fast. It would do him well to learn the art of shooting a bow. He has gained a bit of swordplay knowledge from our time back in the city, but the bow… yes, this is my resolution. To teach my son how to shoot a bow.
