Out With the Old, Happy New Year

Hey there dear friends, it's been a while.
Here we are at the end of 2013 and I am tempted to say good riddance.

That said, I have a hard time with endings, even happy ones.

No big year in review here. Don't really want to relive a lot of it.
How about some Christmas decorating instead, albeit late?

 It is tempting to look at a year filled with unpleasant events and write it off as a bad year.
Being a glass half full girl I have chosen to look at 2013 as a year of healing.
Body and soul healing.
Much better than bad.
Lets face it, lots of beautiful moments happen among even the worst times in life. 

You have provided many of those beautiful moments.
You share so much that is lovely and kind and thoughtful.

Bring on 2014!

I have great hope for a fresh new year.

 Happy New Year friends.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a constant bright spot on even the darkest days.

You lift me up just knowing that we are traveling a path together, near and far, 
all at the same time on this earth.

I wish we could all gather at the table and laugh, and tell stories, and be together.

Oh wait, we already do!
Heres to sharing our New Year.
May it be the best yet.
Hugs, Pam
Pin It!

I'm with you Pammie. Looking back only gives one a crick in their neck. Besides, everyone knows cricks are only good for catching tadpoles!
I think of you daily and would give my good right arm to be sitting with you in your lovely,color rich, over the top home...even if said seat was a dog bed.
I love you to Texas and back.
