As you turn a new leaf in your Book of Life
with the advent of New Year
here is wishing you the addition of 
 many meaningful chapters

Some people say that when you make changes in your life that you are turning over a new leaf. Sometimes we need to step back, to look clearly at who we are and what we have. Life is always made up of more than meets the eye. Once we see this, we can put things back in perspective and regain a sense of serenity.

Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages.  Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.     

Peggy Toney Horton

What we fill the days with is how we spend our lives.  In the end, the lives we chose to live will be determined by how we choose to spend each day.  Wasting your time is like wasting your life. 

 People will remember how you chose to handle life, not what life handed you

Our time is our life, and how we spend it shapes our character, our happiness, our success and our future.  I’m making a conscious effort this year to maintain my happiness.  Happiness is one habit I want to form.  Habits are not always a good thing, but a happiness habit sounds pretty good to me.   Happiness is the same as any other habit, you must practice to get better at it!

The future lies before you, like paths of pure white snow. Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.

If I didn't read another entry from MA, this would be my gem to hold onto:
People will remember how you chose to handle life, not what life handed you

Our time is our life, and how we spend it shapes our character, our happiness, our success and our future.

Good stuff, that will be in the letter I write to the family. THanks lady. And Of course I will be back to morrow! ;-)

we have a blank slate with the new year here. best to utilize it. "Happiness is the same as any other habit, you must practice to get better at it!"

Like Jack wrote, that sentence he calls a 'gem' is wonderful! You, in fact, are a great example. Thank you!
