The start of the new year is always an exciting time.

It is a clean slate . . . a time of resolutions . . .
re-evaluation of the year past . . . setting new goals.

It is a time for making plans, perhaps changing direction or starting along a new path.

For the cat breeder, it is a time of great anticipation.

The queens are coming into season, or have already been bred. Kittens are arriving and as Spring approaches, most breeders will be busy with deliveries, raising litters and weaning kittens.

For exhibitors, the new year marks the start of the final push of the show season. Over the next few months, campaigners will start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Most will reach the point of knowing they will have made their showing goal. Some may realize their goal is no longer "do-able". Some will be running neck-and-neck with their competition to the finish line. It is a time of triumph, stress and occasionally disappointments.

Whatever your goals, whether you meet with triumph or defeat, I hope your journey brings you joy and happiness, friends and treasured memories. Here's wishing each and every one of you all the best for 2019.

May you have:

Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough joy to share with others,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough hope to keep you happy,
Enough faith to banish depression,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough determination to make each day a better day than yesterday.
