Happy New Year 2013


Happy New Year

Good bye 2012 

Hello 2013 


Another year is going down in our history and a new year is coming to us. On this night of wishing in a new year I reflect back on the year that is leaving. 

2012 for me was a trying year full of unwanted news and surprises that I could have done without. As I look back I see myself growing in understanding and gratitude, what it takes to survive and keep going. I learned many lessons about life and that nothing is worth giving up for. 
Even at my age I still strive to learn and grow in wisdom so as not to swindle up, dry up and give up.

My 2013 Wishes For You:

That You Realize That Life is Good!!!
That You Hold Your Family and Friends With Appreciation and Love!
Know That Fear and Stress Will Come But You Have The Power To Overcome!
Be Forever Grateful For All Even The Smallest Things and Especially For Those Things That You Already Have!
That You Will Be Not Afraid To Say "I Love You"!


That You Learn To Relax and Enjoy Life!
That You Will Sleep Like A Baby and Await With Energy and Vigor!
That You Will Have Enough!!!

"We spend January 1 walking through our lives,
room by room,
drawing up a list of work to be done,
cracks to be patched.
Maybe this year,
To balance the list,
we ought to walk through,
the rooms of our lives,
not lurking for flaws,
but for potential."
