HAPPY NEW YEAR to ONE and ALL... Out with the old and in with “ NEW”  Hopes and Dreams.

Last year marked joy and sadness for many... like other families, we too suffered loss with sorrow wiped away by tears of love.

                                            “ The rose is sweetest wash’d with dew,
                                            And Love is loveliest when embalmed in tears”
                                            Sir Walter Scott: Lady of the Lake
                                                                        Canto 1V

I pondered the newness of the snow falling this morning. It was so fresh and clean like a rejuvenating breath of beauty that had come to cleanse the tattered threads that remained from the year before.

Then, I folded the last of my mother clothes and said, “ I LOVE YOU, MOM ”, for the last time.


“ Passed on, beyond our mortal vision,
But now the thought is robbed of gloom,
Within the Father’s many mansions
Still dwelling in another room.

The one whose going left us lonely
Is scaling heights undreamed of yore
And guided on by Love’s unfolding,
Has gone upstairs and shut the door. “

It is time to close the door on 2018  and  open a new door of Hopes and Dreams for the coming year. It is also time to humbly continue to  share your love and generosity with family and friends. 
We all need it !!!

“ Love isn’t like a reservoir. You’ll never drain
it dry. It is much more like a natural spring.  
The longer and the farther it flows, the 
stronger and the deeper and clearer it

Wishing you all, a most joyous and prosperous 2019  !!!

Oh, Zaa, that's really tough. I wondered why we hadn't "heard" from you of late. It's a beautiful photo. We will miss them always.

Sending you wishes for peace and healing in the new year and many good things to help fill some of that loss.
