Do Not Stand Still….

Ice do not stand stillWell it seems I’m a little late coming to the party this year!  Regardless, I wish each of you a better year than the last.

I hope that if you are trying to find that certain someone or something in your life, that this will be your year.  (understanding of course, you must work to do so….no sitting around and waiting!)

I pray that if your heart hurts from loss, that you find peace and resolve.  I pray that we remember to mourn with those who mourn.

I hope our hearts are always open to need, and that we will feed those who are hungry, and clothe those who are bare.

If you have caused hurt to someone, try to make it better.  Even if it means leaving them alone.

Our year is brand new!  I am grateful for another day of life.  Another day with hubby.  Another day with my children, family and friends. and pups! Another day to try to turn me into someone who can make a difference for the good.

Be nice to others.  You never know what they may be dealing with in their lives.          Happy New Year, my friends! ♥ new year

    “Another day to try to turn me into someone who can make a difference for the good.” You DO make a difference for the good. Thank you for making my life better. May your heart be filled with joy every day of the new year.

    Paula, thank you so much for the heart-touching words … yes, if we can only make a little difference to one person each day. Give them a smile or help them with a shopping bag. If we all did that .. our world would start slowly to change.
    Paula, I wish you only the best for and I hope 2014 will touch you gently.

    The ice crusted branches remind me of my years in Indiana…..beautiful… and the ice storms we experienced on occasion – electricity usually went out. But we were ok with candles and fireplace. Don’t see that often in NC. Happy New Year. Sue

    Happy New Year!! 🙂

  14. Lovely sentiments, Paula. I fear this may be a hard year for us. My mother is not doing well since her fall in August. She may not be able to live on her own much longer. I’m actually grateful that our son is back home with us. I think it is good for him and Rich both. I hope Marvin is able to rest a bit now. I’m looking forward to more of your “day trips” in 2014. 🙂

  15. Happy New Year Dear and lovely pictures you’ve got here

  16. Beautiful, Paula, Thanks so much for sharing this.
