Final Hours of 2010

As 2010 comes to a close, I’ve been thinking of all the things I want to do in 2011. So many hopes and dreams I have for the new year and there are so many possibilities. Anything can happen and that’s so very exciting.

I’ve never been the type of person to drift though life. Often, people tell me I’m the kind of person who can make things happen. I’m not so sure about that, but I certainly don’t like to be in a rut. If someone were to look at my life right now, I’m sure it looks like I might be drifting along. However, that’s not the case – there are many new and exciting things going on behind the scenes that I just can’t talk about yet. Rest assured, as soon as they are where I can, I shall!

As 2010 comes to a close and 2011 is just mere hours ahead, I wish all of you the peace of the ending of this year and the bright excitement of what is to come with 2011. May the new year bring you so much love and peace that your heart is filled with joy always. Remember to dream big…because you never know what could happen.





(Photo Note: Mietta and I were trying to pose for a little Christmas photo. She’d rather have her little paws on my face instead. lolol – thought this was too cute not to post, though. The posed ones are too overdone anyway, right? lol )

It’s Christmas Day here in Tennessee now and the snow is falling outside. Snow is so peaceful to me. It quietly builds and it’s beautiful as it collects. Though I’m not sure there will actually be accumulation to this tonight, I do love the fact that it’s snowing on Christmas.

When I first noticed it, I felt as if the world had stopped for a bit. The snow was falling softly, the glow of Christmas lights from a nearby neighbor, the Christmas music playing on my radio. It’s those types of moments I live for. The overwhelming sense of “all is calm” as we hear in the classic song “Silent Night”.

I wish you and your family a beautiful Christmas full of love and “all is calm” moments.
