Monday's special

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
William Arthur Ward




I knew when I was able to resume my daily reading of your blog I'd find some lovely thoughts! I'm so happy to be able to read your blog again and wish you and Peter and all your loved ones a very Happy New Year!

The poem fits perfectly!

Happy New Year, Claudia.

Such a sweet poem. It's always a good thing to look at every new year and every day as a new opportunity. :-)

That is beautiful and very inspiring. Thanks for sharing it. Hugs!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
