Happy New Year

New Year's day is a day we give significance to because we're encouraged everywhere to look back. Okay, look back. But the looking back should always inform the looking forward and I hope you see bright vistas. I hope your blessings in 2011 outweighed your trials and that the same will hold true in 2012. I hope for you good health, loving family, moments laughable and profound and – hey – a few pounds off the old caboose if that would make you happy. So here’s to looking forward with courage and good cheer. Keep your pencil and your wit sharpened and use them both to enrich the lives of others. 

God Bless

  1. Happy New Year to you, too, Susan!

    I enjoyed this concise but hard-hitting post. Here's to sharpened pencils and wit, and to enriching the lives of others with both. :-)

    Blessings to you and yours.
