It's one hour into the new year at my house. Two of our dear friends, Alan and DeAnn, just left for home. We had such a fun evening. It started with Chinese food at the Great Wall... a brand new one, just a short drive from my house. Then we came back here for Dominoes, coffee, chocolate truffles, and lots of laughter.
Life is made so much sweeter when you have good friends to share it with. Friendship doesn't require a fancy home, riches, or a certain social status... it just requires sharing your time, a sense of humor, an open heart...
I am starting this new year with a renewed sense of hope and optimism. I'm not making any particular resolutions. I want to always look for the good in life, to appreciate each day I am given, to share my heart with those I love, and never forget how blessed I am.
May you go into the New Year with anticipation, joy, and faith in the future.
