A Toast to the New Year ‘2016

It looks like Santa may have made a gift giving mistake this year. He dropped a bronchial congestion down my chimney. I know I didn’t have that on my Christmas list.
Poor overworked Santa …. I forgive him.


Midnight bells echoed in the birth of 2016.
A new year to create a better life than the one we had last year.
I hope 2015 was a good year for you filled with wonderful memories.

Visiting with family and friends during the holidays was grand. There’s no greater gift than spending time with those who are dear to us. I’m grateful for these treasures. No amount of money can purchase this type of love.

Well … it’s the end of another year.
Where did it go?

It’s been a ride. I’ve enjoyed every one of those highs and lows on this roller coaster called life.
Sometimes, I think, life is less of a ride and more of a circle. It’s continuous; yet, has slight bends while you’re making your way around.

Whatever way you want to look at life, the main thing to remember is that you are not alone. There’s always someone guiding you in whatever form you choose to believe. Take comfort in knowing that the challenges you’re given are because you can endure them; no one gets what they cannot conquer.


Hang onto your memories;
to all your cherished moments of the past;
to the blessings and the laughter;
the joys and the celebrations;
the sorrows and the tears.
They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays.

Although I don’t make resolutions, I always like to have something to strive for in each new coming year. This year, I want to Dream more. Dreams can help us strive for greater things because we have to believe in them. It can help soften the difficulties we face at times. We should never lose our ability to have childlike dreams.

I want to “Thank” everyone for being my supportive blogger peeps. You’ve helped me grow and become more than I was before I started this blog journey.
Happy New Year 2016 …..

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.
