Happy New Year!


Thank you for the Christmas wishes - we had a wonderful day! I spent a few days before and after Christmas nursing a head cold but it's finally clearing out.

I'm here to wish you and yours the very best in the new year. I hope that 2010 will be full of everything wonderful and delightful.

Personally and outside our home 2009 has been challenging for many. My family and I are very happy to see 2009 coming to an end and have high hopes for new beginnings in 2010. I could go on and on about the distress and challenges we faced in 2009 but that wouldn't change anything and only fill me with negative feelings. Sigh!

I try to choose a word every year that I carry in my heart and mind. In 2010 I want to focus on two words..... "Gratitude & Generosity".

I'll be back tomorrow, January 1, 2010 to issue a small challenge. I hope you'll check back with me.

I'm very grateful for your visits and comments! Thank you!

In Friendship and Happy New Year!!!

I'm glad to let go of 2009 too. But it makes me worry about 2010!!! Already I have a broken washer/dryer and broken phone. Things happen in 3s don't they? Sheesh. Lets hope both of us have a good year.
