It has been a while since I was able to write anything on my blog. It seems I have a hard time to connect to my blog site from home, I can log on but can't get to the posting page.
Christmas came and went in the blink of an eye. Ours was quiet and very enjoyable to spend time with family. This year we had a farm raised turkey. That was the best tasting turkey we have had for Christmas Dinner since I was a child. The taste was awesome. Definitely was worth the extra $$$.
I was sent an email with the following resolution. I found it very inspiring and wanted to share it with everyone. Along with Best Wishes to you and your family from me and my family for a wonderful year in 2008!
A Wonderful Resolution for the New Year!
What amazing gifts the new year brings! An entire year's worth of wonderful opportunities, given to us one sunrise at a time. Many of the moments ahead will be marvelously disguised as ordinary days, but each one of us has the chance to make something extraordinary out of them.
Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life.The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can. Have pages on understanding and tales of overcoming hardships. Fill your story with enthusiasm, adventure, learning, and laughter. And make each chapter reflect time doing these things:
Follow your dreams. Work hard. Be kind. Do what you can to make the door open on a day that is filled with inspiration in some special way. Remember: Goodness will be rewarded. Smiles will pay you back. Have fun.Find strength. Be truthful. Have faith. Don't focus on anything you lack.
Realize that people are the treasures in life, and happiness is the real wealth. Have a diary that describes how you're doing your best, and... the rest will take care of itself.
