I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "

2013

Changing the date to 2013 doesn't seem as strange as it did when I had to start typing or writing 2012.

This is going to be a very good year. That is not a prediction; it is a determination.  As in a firm resolve to make this coming year a year committed to personal success and growth. As I persevere in this quest,  I will use the wisdom in the words of the Serenity Prayer. I am wholeheartedly dedicated to being a better person. If this is a New Year's Resolution, so be it.

Best wishes to my blogging friends for a year of awakening for us all, being aware of people around us, accepting their decisions that seem to be mistakes, allowing them to work through their own lives and learn from their mistakes just as we want them to do to us.  I give you, dear readers, my unreserved love and encouragement and hope you pass it along throughout the year.

Hugs to you all.

It's funny because I feel just like you do about the number change. It just seems natural for some reason and it never has before! Happy New Year!

2012 was such a great year that I almost didn't want to let it go. Nothing like 2011 which I was so glad to see end. Like you, I am resolving to make 2013 a great year. However, it seems like tragedies of which I have no control, often get in the way.

Your attitude is always such an inspiration to me. I am going to try to carry that same kind of attitude into 2013. Happy New Year, my friend!

Mindreader!!! You know, of course, that is exactly what's going on in my life as I enter into this new year -in hopes that my daughter changes her mind and doesn't take the grandkids and move away from here, from me! And if it doesn't work the way I'd like to see it go, that I have the strength to deal with whatever repercussions may come may way -or hers, as well. Meanwhile, just keep those anti-depressants coming!
