Every time we hear this song we cannot help but thing of New Year's. We remember the year that has passed. The loved ones we have lost and the friends that we have made. Moments bittersweet that embrace our souls and joyous occasions that lift our spirits. All these things that create the events that make our lives...our memories.

This year I had lost many precious family members, my beloved grandmother being one of them. I shall miss her because I do not feel that I was ever able to spend enough time with her. I know she is in a good place and no longer suffering and for that I am grateful.

I also met an amazing person who is now a very good friend that feels as if she has been a part of my life for years and that she will always be around. She has the best advice and is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. She is my sistah from another mishah... :)

I know many dear friends have fallen on bad times, financially and physically. I hope that this year brings them all a bit of happiness and peace. Everyone deserves that. So let me raise that cup of kindess yet for auld lang syne.

Fire Meets Desire

I think I have been eating at McDonald's too long, when did the BK creepy guy suddenly decided to get all SMEXY, and start selling FLAME?I don't know about anyone else, but this masked king of the flaming broiled whopper is just creeping me out in a funny way. Enjoy!!

Holiday Blessings

I have been blessed to have a few weeks off for a much needed vacation. It has given me time to reflect on this past year and look forward to an upcoming year full of promise and hope. I am thankful for many things, my family, my health, my friends, my job, and my books. It is my fondest wish to strengthen all those relationships that I have let falter and to work on becoming a better person, what that actually means for me, I am not so sure about. I only know that I want to lay my head down at night and sleep peaceful thoughts knowing that I have done my best. I found this passage on thankfulness the other day and decided that it fit my current frame of mind.

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfilment comes to those whoare also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,and they can become your blessings.
