New Year. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked,
embraced and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this new year of delight and self discovery....
~ A week into the new year already!
Have you made any new year resolutions dear friends? I wonder....
Although I am still a little under the weather and have some lingering effects from the pesky flu. I have embraced another year with a tradition, I started in 2007.
Each January I start a journal of quotes, ideas, thoughts and inspirations and of course gratitude...
I have always kept a diary for as long as I can remember, it helps me feel grounded appreciative and aware of what is truly important to me, I guess.
I must confess I struggled with my thoughts and feelings whilst nursing mum through her very long journey ....
~ But alas I still have my diaries to look back on now, a lot of sadness, but also a lot of love is written in these pages.
~ Have you made any 'New Year' resolutions, dear friends?
I ask once more.
I ask once more.
They are quite often hard to keep, I know.....
On the New Years eve, I met Patrick, Ooh this was many moons ago, superstition had me take out a piece of jet black coal in my hand bag.
Although he is used to my ways now, he must have found me odd, perhaps!
I had read this to be a lucky omen to bring into your home from the old year, to welcome in the new one. This was all of 25 years ago, a little magic perhaps involved.... *****
I remember thinking when we met there was perhaps a soul recognition between us as though we knew each other already and had perhaps been before in another time....
(Patrick would laugh if he read my blog)
He doesn't thankfully, far too busy running.....
~ I call his running 'fuel for his soul...'
~ Liseanthus , my favourite flower in the colour of dairy milk wrappers with beautiful roses.
~ And because New year was spent in my PJs, this wonderful little read was enjoyed too!
A gift from another lovely friend.
I love reading anything magical and most especially about the Moon.
Some wonderful gifts from Santa....
Dolly from ' The Button and the Bean' beautiful blog!
I will close for now and leave you with this thought!
"There are years that ask questions and years that answer."
I wonder which year this one will be?
~ Take time to dream....
Daffodils, just a little bit of Spring times promise.
I do hope spring is just a round the next corner.....
