A NEW YEAR IS BEGINNING AGAIN

New Year's eve is like every other night;
 there is no pause in the march of the
universe, no breathless moment of
silence among created things that the
 passage of another twelve months may
 be noted; and yet no man has quite the
 same thoughts this evening that come
with the coming of darkness on other nights. 

 ~Hamilton Wright Mabie



2011 is drawing to a close;
I look back and it feels like
it was all a blur because it
went by so fast!

I didn't want the year to end
without  saying Thank you to
all the wonderful people I
have met here. You have
all enriched my days, my
life and I am a better person
for having our paths cross.
As the new year unfolds, with
all the joys and heartaches,
the ups and downs, the boring
and the highs that life always
brings, I know one thing...I
will always be thankful for you!
With much love on this night,
stay safe and I'll see you in
the new year.

  16. Tracey, thank you for thinking of us. I must say that the feeling is mutual. I wouldn't have missed our friendship for all the tea in China.
    Fate was very kind to allow us to find each in blogland.
