HAPPY NEW YEAR!

"We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

  ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce




This has been an amazing year connecting with my blogging/FB friends (have met dear ones in person and goal to meet more). Reaching out has filled my ♥ with appreciation/love, knowing our 'cyber souls' must shine ...

My 'Home Baked' sign is a gift from dear Liz Watkin ... we are 'kindred souls from across the sea' ... how touched to receive this thoughtful gift! And I could go on ...

In gratitude for remarkable/inspiring people in my life ... I am indeed a 'rich' woman!

Let the 'New Year' spark us all to reach out ... a gift that fills our hearts with riches that $$ can't buy.

Friends bless our lives each day, don't they? Happy New Year to you too!

Beautiful thoughts, Joey. Don't you find that the happiest people are the ones who look outward at how they can brighten the lives of others rather than focusing on what is missing in their own lives. Wishing you the happiest New Year ever!!!

Love that Tourtiére! (Translation: Please, post more of your dishes in future entries).

Your friend's gift is perfect for you. Brings to mind a favorite quote from an angel in progress, Clarence, who said, 'No Man is a Failure Who has Friends.'
Joey, you're the richest woman I know.

Wishes for a Blessed New Year, Amiga!

I followed a fellow garden bloggers comment to your site. Your photography is outstanding and I can't wait to visit again.

Happy New Year - from my Ohio Garden!

Happy New Year, dear Joey. Though I don't make resolutions, I've committed to reading more blogs again, and writing more posts myself. I miss our community, which got so big then sort of collapsed.

Blessings abound ... thank you dear friends. May this 'New Year' bring health, happiness, and heartfelt dreams fulfilled.
