annual ritual of renewal: 2012 . . . ready or not!!!!

"Pensive" . . . pretty much sums it up for me at the end of

2011, which was a year of trials for many 

friends, family & acquaintances.

I'm certainly not alone in this experience.  There is plenty of

evidence from your blogs, Facebook, etc., that 

this has been the norm rather than

the exception.  Wish I had

a crystal ball . . . .

But, really, how do you prepare for the future? moment.  

Live NOW, fully!

I find this very hard to do--even with conscious

practice.  My thoughts veer off into 

next week, next month, etc.

Spiny critters these

thoughts are!

I wish to take nothing for granted.  I'm grateful for each

and every one of you who has blessed my life

in 2011 . . . .  My life has been fulfilled

by your kind comments, support

of my business and sharing!!

It's just not possible to sum up all the precious, happy moments

we've all shared in 2011 . . . but, be assured, I reflect

on them all with great joy and hope that we'll

be together again in 2012!!!!!!!

As 2012 knocks on my door . . . I'm answering with great hope and

optimism . . . and I hope you do too!  HAPPY NEW YEAR

to all of our friends and family near and far!!!  May

blessings keep you safe and happy, and 

may strength and hope be your

friends in times of need.

We're all truly the

same.  Let us

be kind!

Wonderfully said! Although I learned and grew from the year that was 2011! I am very glad to see it go. It was definitely a tough one. I am ready for renewal - and re-purposing...of myself!! :) Happy New Year!
