Reflections....


It's the last day of 2008 ~

I'm not sorry to see it pass...really, I'm never sorry or regretful to see a year pass.

2008 was a year that brought us many joys, with the continuing Friendships of Old & the beginning of New ones...

Progress on our shop & farmhouse continues, and I can't wait to see the changes coming next.


There were marriages, divorces, births & deaths,...beginnings & endings that enrich our lives for better or worse, but are always enriching nonetheless.


Illnesses, laughter, road-trips and the occasional argument..
these are what makes life simply,
...worth living.


I don't make New Year resolutions...I think that sets one up for failure.
why mark a certain day to make positive changes in our lives,
when we have the ability do that every single day?


What I do instead, is just what I'm doing now...
I look back on situations and try to understand how (if ?) I could have made them better.
I weigh opinions & options
and usually come to the same conclusions
that were presented to me at that time.


Living a simple, less cluttered (body, mind & spirit) life is truly freeing and joyful.

I will continue to wake up each morning thanking the Stars for who, what & where I am,
and who I am blessed to be with....
that includes those of fur, feather or skin.


Take today to reflect on your past year...
you can't change it now, but tomorrow morning you can change everything....
~ again.
That little chick that you see in my hand in the picture above can't remember having it's picture taken, but it knows that tomorrow the sun will rise and a wonderful cycle will begin again...


Peace & Prosperity to you All ~

Lori

It has been a year of beginnings, endings and new experiences. The cycle is awesome in the true sense of the word. My only resolution is to tap into the Earth's energy and channel it positively.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL THE BRECHLINS!!
