Happy Holidays and a blessed new year!!! 12.24.2007

Another year is coming to an end and what a year it was. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that one day I'd be staring into the eyes of a beautiful little girl, laughing like I've never laughed before, you know the kind that brings happy tears to your eyes....makin' yer cheeks hurt a lil' bit? ;-)


Well, 10 Months ago, Madelyn Grace Nicholson, came into my life, helping me realize, all that is and ever will be important in this lifetime is family. And what a wonderful time of year to be reminded of that.


A few friends of mine this last year have lost loved ones.....their grandparents, parents, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, wives & husbands have moved on.


Some other friends have been stricken with illness they wouldn't wish on their worst enemy.


But through it all, they all mentioned one thing that resonates with me. It is family and friends that have helped them through the dark despair and they wish they would have taken more time for them....making every day count.....what a powerful statement.


I hope that we all have many more wonderful years to fill with precious memories with our loved ones.....but if we don't, let's make every day count starting today.


I pray 2008 is a blessed year, that all your needs are fullfilled, may you continue to live in peace.


Be blessed, be love, inspire
