Sharing

Ahhhh... The New Year arrived as we shared it with two other couples last evening after partaking of a prime rib dinner and returning to our home and a evening of playing cards and having dessert.... Apple pie and ice cream....
Today weather wise really is not a good start to the new year... It is very windy and rain blowing everywhere and chilly... here in NW Ohio... Inside our home, however, it is warm { something I am thankful for.. believe me.} and a traditional pork and sauerkraut is in the oven baking for this evenings meal....
Last year is now in the past and certainly not without it's troubled moments.. It is refreshing to look forward although sometime can be scary with the unknown... The wisdom to enjoy what is given to us however is key to contentment... Sometimes we let those small blessings and moments fly right on by us... I made no New Years resolutions as I am not good at keeping them but I made a promise to myself to enjoy all the small blessings and moments given as they are most of the time the best ones.. the ones that cost us nothing... Not a dime... This is what I want to keep a top and fresh in my thoughts....
Happy New Year... everyone....
