Happy New Year!

Hello Sweetie,

I hope your Christmas or Hannukah was lovely and wonderful! It was very nice and peaceful in our household. We just went to one Christmas party and boy was it a party ever! Such delicious food, drinks and dancing and singing!

Here is a photo from our October (?) trip to Destin, Florida. It may warm you up a bit in this winter day.

The winner of my hat and scarf for the best Christmas memory goes to Lisa Gordon who wrote:

"My fondest Christmas memories revolve around the baking of cookies. I make all of the ones I was taught to make by my mother, aunt, and grandmother. When I smell them baking, I am immediately taken back to my childhood, and it is really a wonderful experience for me."

Lisa, if you will kindly email your home address, I will send it out pronto.

Happy New Year, my friend!

“Many things are thrown our way in this game of life. It's how you deal with them that shows your true character. I want all of you to feel the hope, love & passion I feel for the upcoming year & the rest of my life. I want ALL of you to not only go for your dreams, but have a damn ass good time doing it! Love & Warmth," May ♥ Water

Happy New Year, dear Charlotte!
I am so glad to have met you here, and i wish you a year filled with all things wonderful.

Oh my goodness, I need to do more reading, but I have to be honest with you, this photograph reminded me of something very special in my life, and all else just kind of went by the wayside. For that, I am sorry!

Thank you so much, Charlotte.

What a peaceful photo, wish I was on that beach.

I hope your new year has started off to be a good one and uneventful.

Prayers to you and yours that GOD keep you safe this coming year and as we look for our LORD's return. Maybe this year... I pray so.

HUGS to you dear friend.
