Happy New Year!!

For the New Year-
May your days be full of
More laughter than tears
More love than hate
More sun than rain
More fun than work
The journey of the new year starts with one step- onto a path- that may be well traveled and well lit or may be unexplored territory- set out with your head held high, your step true.  There are obstacles in every path in life- some you need to overcome yourself and others there will be a person holding out a hand to help you through them- grasp the hand firmly when offered and know that the person is there because he/she is meant to be there to help you- there is no shame in accepting help.  
Such grand adventures await in the coming days/weeks/months.  For me, for you.  I can't wait to read about them- can't wait to share them with you.
For today, relish the possibilities that a new year brings, enjoy the time with your families, loved ones or cherish the time to spend alone.  The adventure begins today- and I, for one, can't wait!!
