Looking to 2012

"I made a gift for you" (click to enlarge)

One of my children wrote this on my window yesterday. I will take it as my motto for 2012. Each day can I say, “I made a gift for you,” a gift of the day, a gift of my heart, of love, of my laughter, of my being? That would be a year worth living. All of you have done that for me this year.

Thank you for reading my blog, for being a part of this online community, for sharing comments and links, for writing your own blogs. It’s made my life a richer one and has shown me the best of what the internet can be.

Wishing everyone a new year of peace, contentment, and good reading!

    LOVE this!

    • Sandra I am so glad. For writers especially it’s important to come back to what we know really matters. There is so much pressure on us to focus on externalities that we can’t control.

    Happy New Year, Lilian! You are a gift to all of us – each and every day of the year. I love coming here and partaking of your art and wise words, your thoughtful musings on this great wide world we are all walking in together. Thank you for being yourself and for being here.
