Goodbye 2011

As time grows nearer to celebrate another new year and reflect on the year that was.

The very essence of 2011 taught me that every tomorrow is a gift.

I’m so grateful for life, having a heart full of love, for the beautiful memories I’ve shared with family and friends.

A New Year how lucky we Are!

I will celebrate and ensure I embrace every precious moment bestowed upon me in 2012 and share my good fortunes with those around me.
Be truly present, in every minute that I’m blessed to share with my children and grandchildren.
To continue to follow the map and destiny I’ve designed especially for me in life.

I will always remember that nothing else matters when I’m in the arms of the one that I love!


Wishing you the Happiest New Year Ever

I’m looking forward to sharing our New Year together
 My Friends

Always Love In Wendy’s World

All that you said was so perfectly expressed and I too was taught this past year that "every tomorrow is a gift!" I hope 2012 is just as magical for you!

I am so sorry to hear of you loosing your sister. What a beautiful tribute to her with the Celene Dion 'Sisters' video. I couldn't help but cry. My youngest sister is facing Lyme Disease, with four young children...she is trying to get well, but the disease can become alarmingly scary.
You have such deep thoughts here on your blog pages...and such beautiful photography!
May you have a very blessed New Year~
