With Wishes From Our Home to Yours

May your past be a pleasant memory
Your future filled with delight and mystery
Your now a glorious moment
that fills your life with deep contentment.

May your day be filled with blessings
Like the sun that lights the sky
And may you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly.
(An old Celtic blessing)

and may you dance

and play with those you love
in the midst of a winter's snow.

This is a first for me
I have republished this post from January 1, 2013
because it says exactly what I want to say at the beginning of every year.
I noticed the comments from 2013 have been carried forward!
I am so technologically challenged!

  6. Ahhh...important blessings to remember and embrace! May your year be filled with exquisite moments! Love the spotty RP in the 2nd pic, reminds me of a Dr. Seuss critter!

  7. Thank you, Penny, for that beautiful blessing. Where I live in Australia we don't get to experience snow like you have, on Friday we have temp of 39c forecast, too hot for me! Wishing you a year filled with joy and good health. With plenty of time for more creative projects.

  9. I don't like winter but I have to admit I might enjoy it just a little if I could play outdoors with your rusty pups! The very happiest of years to you Penny!!
