Another year is here and gone!.....
Another year is here and gone!......
"What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The New years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping in the night.
We hug the world until it stings
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year."
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox-
Some of the most important things I learned during my nursing career I have also found beneficial in my personal life. Since we are starting a New Year I thought I would share them again here.....
Never underestimate the power of prayer.
It's the little things that matter most.
Celebrate all of life's little moments.
Hug everyone you know at least once a day.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
It's OK to cry.
Always expect the unexpected.
There is humor in almost every situation.
Always keep a spare outfit in your car.
"Goodness is the only investment that never fails."
One of my New Year's resolutions this year is not to commit to certain days and posts here on my blog. I found that I sometimes missed posting things that I would have loved to share because of previous post commitments. If I had a particular busy week those weekly posts sometimes didn't seem as much fun as they should have been. In addition, there were some seasonal blog parties that I would have liked to join but unfortunately I didn't have the time. Now that is not to say that I will never participate in my favorite weekly blogs again but I found committing to certain days on a regular basis has been some what limiting, at least for me. With that said, I would like to thank everyone who joined me for Tea and Friendship Tuesday's and also thank everyone who stopped by here on Tuesday's and left such lovely comments.
My hubby and I have been busy taking down our Christmas decorations and getting our house back in order.
Charli has gained a pound and a half since Thanksgiving bringing her to a whopping eleven and a half pounds! I think everyone in our family must have been sneaking her treats during the holidays. I'm not even going to mention my weight. All I have to say is I think the time has come for us both to get back on some type of an exercise program.
"You've got to be kidding. NO! NO! Not again!"
"Oh come on Charli. We can do it."
"Speak for yourself! I just want to go take a nap."
"Oh brother! We go through this every year! It's just a good think she never sticks with it."
"What was that you said Charli?"
"I said I'm walking Grammy. I'm walking"
How about you? Do you make New Year's resolutions and keep them or are you more like me? Every year I start out with the best intentions but some where down the line they fall to the way side. I'll keep you posted on how this year's resolutions go:>)
Happy New Year everyone!
With warmest regards, Carol
