It’s just after midnight on the twenty-ninth of December and I’ve been wondering what my final post of 2011 should be about.
I could do my year in review. I’ve had four really scary health episodes all involving my immediate family, but rather than lament that potential horror, and what could have been, I want to Thank God and rejoice in our blessings. They, all four of those loved ones, were taken care of, and if not yet back to living their lives as they should, are on the road to full recovery. I can rest my head easily on the Heaven Sent pillow tonight.
There has also been much pleasure in my life this year. I’ve successfully completed a mission I began two years ago. It’s now in the hands of others who will do well. The love of writing and expressing who I am is being fulfilled as often as I wish by my discovery of WordPress and the act of blogging. Health has improved. My children are all in loving relationships, and I have the most beautiful, smart and talented grandchildren in the world. That is not an exaggeration.
I am continuously in touch with great people, in person, by phone, or on the internet. Our lives are completed by terrific close friends who I learn from, and who in turn learn from me. My husband and I continue to make each other laugh everyday (This is Priceless). He and I have enough love between us that we can share it with others, and that very act continues to enhance our lives. Going to Atlantic City is often on my calendar. (Waiting for the big hit that will surely come some day.)
A multitude of post subjects are swirling through my mind. What should I write about? The ideas seem to want to jump from my brain, to my keyboard tapping fingers, only to appear on this screen. But no. I will save them for 2012.
To All My Friends, Fans, Loved Ones – I wish you all a Grand and Happy New Year, Overflowing with Love, Life, Health and Good Fortune. When I raise my glass to toast the New Year, I will be embracing all of you.************
