Good bye 2011 Hello 2012

As I sit here and think about the year 2011 and all that has gone by in it some bad some good. I know we all have to take the bad with the good, That is how we learn to live life.  I also don't think about what's got done and what didn't those things don't really matter it seems. What does is the great gifts God has given us. Family, Friends, Love, a roof over our heads, food on the table. And the beauty in all the everyday things I see as I look around me.
Being able to sit out in the yard and see the mountains, clouds over head, watching the chickens doing their thing, putting in a garden and seeing it grow and then harvesting it, to eat, for canning or share with others. Waving at a neighbor as they drive by or even better yet if they stop for a chat, it can make your day. I think more of all that we are given each and everyday we wake up. That we have been given another day to enjoy all that we love & matter to us, our family, good friends, home and our critters.
Being able to give someone a hug, a kind word, a smile or just a ear to talk to, saying a prayer for someone who ask for it,can mean so much.
 I hope this new year bring as much love & joy this past year has.


  1. That's so true, Charlotte. The measure of happiness is in a person's heart, not a list of accomplishments or failures - or "things" that are owned.

    When I count my many blessings, your friendship is at the top of the list.

    Happy New Year, Booboo! I hope 2012 brings you as much happiness as you bring others :) Love you.
