As I write this post, my thoughts are filled with anticipation for the coming year. How excited I feel to embrace the challenge of filling this year with blessings for my family and friends. The old year will pass this evening into the history books as a smoke stream fading into the wind. The experiences will remain with us to be reflected upon from time to time, a gift that we can learn and grow from. We have a chance once again, to create remarkable lives, to persue what are now only dreams and to continue to enjoy this journey we call life. As the pages turn, we find a new page waiting to be written upon. Fresh new ideas to create, new friends to meet, new challenges to overcome. The sun is going down the scene outside is slowly darkening, much like the drawing curtain on a scene from a theater stage. The closing of the final act. I watch from time to time, the hands on the clock ticking away at the last few hours of this year. Be of good cheer my friends, tis only the passing of time. The order of life demands that to be able to experience the new, we have let go of the old. Life is a beautiful gift that we each have been given. Take time to reflect on yesterday and prepare to greet tomorrow.
As the snow settles around me this evening, I am going to read a good book, snuggle into my new quilt and sip some hot chocolate, letting the New Year settle in as gently as the falling snowflakes outside. Thank you my wonderful blog friends for your visits and notes of encouragment. Happy New Year to Everyone! I look forward to spending 2011 with you..
