Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

New Year's Wishes

I was given this card quite a few years ago by a good friend that I have since lost touch with. I loved the card so much that I had it framed and think of it every year when the New Year rolls around. I hope you like it too.

i wish for those i love 
this new year
an opportunity 
to earn sufficient
to have that which they need
for their own
and to give 
that which they desire 
to others,
to bring into the lives 
of those about them
some measure of joy, 
to know the satisfaction
of work well done,
of recreation earned 
and therefore savoured,
to end the year 
a little wiser,
a little kinder 
and therefore 
a little happier.

~Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy New Year Everyone! See you in 2010!

Last Words...

Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
