Happy New Year - 2010
e. schoettler - 2009
Patti Digh opens her New Year's Eve post on 37 Days with this quote:
"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential." -Ellen Goodman
Wow. Think about it. Change the paradigm. What could happen!
Granny Sue burned all the troubles people sent her last night in her New Year's Bon Fire!
This morning those troubles and worries are just ashes left in the fire pit.
Today we start with a clean slate.
What if ,
instead of trying to fix what did not work last year -
we stepped out - stepped up - faced forward - not looking back.
And went ahead.
But worth trying.
Today I am cooking black-eyed peas and ham to give the New Year a traditional welcome and add some LUCK to the pot. Jim made bread yesterday and I tell you we are loving his home-made bread. Makes every meal feel a bit special.
Special is good!
