“I'm not sure,” I said rather hesitatingly. “What was your one important
aspect of the year?” 

I thought I could deflect the question and get her talking about her
year and forgetting about my year. She had many things that were very 
important to her during the year. Most of it had to do with her 
grandchildren. If there were an annual award for the best grandmother, 
she would probably win. 

Then of course, there were the thrift store shopping escapades. She
knows every thrift store in the county and knows everybody working 
those stores. The most important aspect of this is, they know her and 
quite well. 

I would be failing in my duty as a husband if I did not mention the
marvelous cooking and baking she has done throughout the year. She once 
mentioned that maybe I should go on a diet and I rebutted by saying, 
“How in the world could I give up eating your delicious food?” She 
smiled and never mentioned going on a diet again. 

Hoping she had forgotten about me, she turned to me and ask, “So, what
was the best part of your year?” 

Finally, a thought came to me, and I replied, “Spending the year was
someone like you.” I thought that would get me off the hook for a while 
until she responded by saying, “What do you mean someone like me?” 

Sometimes no matter what you do or say, it's not the right thing. 

David knew something of this when he wrote, “I have considered the days
of old, the years of ancient times. I call to remembrance my song in 
the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent 
search” (Psalm 77:5-6). 

Cherishing good memories makes the New Year that much more exciting.
