HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2015 !!  We will be at home watching the ball drop  in Times Square in New York City on TV, drinking our champagne and eating chocolates.  Have you ever wondered why  all those people like standing so closely jammed in together for several hours in the cold to watch the ball drop in person?  Different strokes for different folks I guess!

To start off the new year, I am sharing one of my favorite sayings…

GRATITUDE UNLOCKS THE FULLNESS OF LIFE.

IT TURNS WHAT WE HAVE INTO ENOUGH; TURNS DENIAL INTO ACCEPTANCE,;

CHAOS TO ORDER; CONFUSION TO CLARITY.

IT CAN TURN A MEAL INTO A FEAST; A HOUSE INTO A HOME;

A STRANGER INTO A FRIEND.

GRATITUDE MAKES SENSE OF OUR PAST; BRINGS PEACE FOR TODAY,

AND CREATES A VISION FOR TOMORROW!

…by Melody Beattie

Here’s hoping you feel gratitude for the good things in your life and even bless the not so great things in your life so they can have the opportunity to turn positive!

  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR to an wonderful person and friend. You are like these fireworks – exploding in beautiful light to all you come in contact with. I never commented on your blog about the posting regarding your dark period of depression. Even in the darkness you lived through, you came out of it giving illumination to others. Putting this on your blog was so like you – unselfish and sharing. I am certain your words gave hope and encouragement to many – including me! Hope to see you soon. Sending love and wishes for all your dreams coming true in 2015.
