“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” Edith Lovejoy Pierce ♥
HAPPY NEW YEAR’S DAY!!! What a gift to be alive in 2011… Resolutions, celebrations, invocations and more, won’t change the fact that we are blessed to be here, and must make the best of this new year. I’m not quite sure which is easier; endings or beginnings? Either way, we are no longer on the cusp of a New Year and I can’t help but reminisce about the year that ended and applaud the new one before us.
The year 2010 was full of promises and harsh surprises. The economy continued to take a dive and we all learned to figure out ways to manage. The meaning of family and friends gained a new resonance and our homes mattered. The President delivered on a number of promises. Political seats were lost and won. The weather dipped and sprung with extremes in temperatures… we all made new friends, on and offline, and for some, new enemies… life moseyed on. 2011 will be better. If there is anything I wish for our world in 2011, it will have to be for Peace and Love. May everyone find something to smile about this year. Happy New Year!
For 2011, I send 12 gifts/blessings/wishes to each of you:
♥ Peace & Love
♥ Divine Protection
Again, here’s to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
