As I prepared to face my maker -- err, in-laws -- over the holiday season ...
traveling over the fields and through the swamps, I thought about things I could do in the new year that would make my year better. I share my thoughts with you . . .

What I Learned This Year . . .
  • Enjoy the competition, but never let it get personal. Someone else's successes does not equal your failures.

  • Marvel in the magic of something new.

  • Enjoy your friends and trust them to make the right decisions in the long run. Stress can make people say, do and assume the worst. Realize that when the rough times or the success highs are over, the people who stood by you in the beginning are probably the people who will be by you when it is all over.
  • Experience the joy of sharing . . . Whether it be your time, talents, possessions or blessings.

  • Life can be survived without chocolate . . . but little bits here and there along that way sure make the rest of the days you are good seem somehow easier.

  • And Finally . . .

A lone Abyssinian WILL find wherever you are curing the bourbon ball cookies and grow opposable thumbs to get at it . . . so unless you enjoy cleaning carpets or holding the head of a hung over red thing . . . stick with sugar cookies and Tupperware :)

I hope you have a safe and happy holiday and I look forward to seeing everyone again in the new year!
