Welcoming the New Year


It is New Year's Day, 2016, and the world is still turning. The sun came up this morning long before I crawled out of bed. Last night we rang in the New Year with friends, bubbly and New Year's Crackers (also known as Christmas Crackers). We toasted, we hugged and we closed the chapter on 2015.

Now we look forward to a new year. The world is not a perfect place, nor are there perfect people, but I still believe it is a good place, filled with good people. I shall be counting my blessings for all the goodness in my life.

This is also a leap year, so we have one more day of winter...or another day to be grateful for - however you choose to look at it.

May each of you be richly blessed this year with health, happiness and peace.

  2. I found so much good in so many people while my son was in the hospital. People came out of the WOODWORK that I never expected... so much good... so much help... I had been so fed up with people in the world... it was wonderful to be brought back to those who have such big hearts!

    1. Hi Katherine! People are basically good, but there are always a few bad apples. Glad you were surrounded by such good-hearted folks.
