New Year 2012

We'll have a cup of kindness...















for auld lang syne...
















It's a time to remember. What we loved about 2011, and what we'd much rather forget.

The idea of dusting ourselves off and making a new year better, is a testament to an inherent belief that hope and redemption are right around the corner. A certainty that this time, we'll try harder, do better, and accomplish more. With child-like faith, we look forward to a fresh start, and new beginning.  It's our favorite time to promise a "do-over".

The things I'd like to achieve in 2012 are similar to those I've identified in years past.  I always make my list with the best of intentions, yet before I know it, they drift away like smoke into a clear blue sky. One thing I've learned over the years is not to beat myself up if I don't succeed.

And always be ready to give it another try. 

Indy, Bogey and I wish you a wonderful New Year filled with health, love, happiness, and plenty to keep you motivated and moving toward your goals in 2012.

Happy New Year!!!

the photo of Indy and Bogie sum it up perfectly!! Just wonderful!

Actually my friend your use of the word "intentions" to me is a much better idea than saying "resolutions"..."resolutions" are much too confining and "intentions" leave wiggle room!
