Happy New Year


It is New Year's Eve and as I read some of my favorite blogs, I'm struck with how many of us have had  our share of challenges this past year. Health issues, our own or those we care about; employment and financial issues, the death of someone we love, relocation, emotional concerns, worries about children...the list goes on and on.
I'm not one to make resolutions at the New Year. Too many times, I have set unreasonable expectations for myself and then feel let down before February arrives. Weight loss, exercise, being more organized...you get the picture. For now I'm just grateful for the return of my health, the love of my family and the care and support of friends...the ones I see often and the ones I've never met in person...my blogging friends.
Thank you for your prayers and kind words this past year.
I have appreciated every one of you more than I could adequately express.
I am so blessed.

My wish for the New Year is
Peace in our world,
Joy in our hearts,
Love in our homes.

Blessings,
Joyce

What a sweet blog entry. Yes, 2011 was trying in many ways and for almost everyone that I know. But thankfully the new year gives us a way to start over. I love your little "wish" at the end. It sums it up very nicely. :-)

I hope you have a great year!

Happy New Year, Joyce! Love your journal/notebook in your next post! I have used an Amy Knapp Organizer the last few years, and this year it was sold out! So I spent a few *lazy* hours last night creating my own, a sort of re-take on Amy's calendar/organizer. For my cover I used the book cover from a old hymnal! I'll try to show photos of the project soon. After I post a few month's worth of thing I haven't posted or blogged about yet! I'm so far behind blogging, I'm about out of the game!
May you have 2012 blessings this year!
Love and Hugs, Heidi
