In This New Year


May You ... 

Have light shine away
the darkness of your valley
so you can reach home.

Meet along the way
strangers who treat you kindly
 and with a full smile.

Feel deep in your heart
the warmth of those beside you
who also love you.

Sherri, happy new year! For some reason, my reader stopped reading your blog so I've embarked on a marathon read of all your posts. Glad to hear things are going well.

Joan, what privilege to have you stop by for the first time. Happy new year. I'll be in touch soon.

Such refreshing words to start the new year! And our cup runneth over :-) Jennifer and I received our copy of your book in the mail Dec. 31 so we have some great reading to move us forward. Congratulations on your published work!

Wishing you all the best in 2014 Judy. I haven't received your book yet...the postal service in Canada is so slow.
