This month has been...

...one of changes, introspection and delightful happenings, to say nothing of celebrations of the season.

With my favourite daughter moving back to town along with her two travelling companions, our house is full of laughter, howls (mostly from the dogs) and fun.

I've been following a number of blogs this year, and this past month has been one of  'words to live by' for the upcoming year on many of the posts.  I've been unable to choose one word that sums up my feelings, but with reference to my last post, this is my aim for 2016.


I plan to do what I can, from where I am in my own community to create a better world.  And truly, isn't that all one can do?

I'm wishing you a year of all that you could possibly desire.

  12. Creating a better world shows both gratitude for those who have come before us and encouragement for those who will follow us here. I have not yet picked a single word for 2016, but rather a change in attitude for myself. May we both go forward and succeed! Mwah!

    1. What a lovely way to put that, Kay, and so apt. I am still circling the 'word' for 2016, and suspect it's starting to gel, primarily including that change of attitude you mentioned!

  13. If everyone did what they could to make a better world, the world would be a much better place. Blessings!

  15. Yes - Win - that's all we can do! I often worry because it seems my world is so small but I have learned that even right here in my own community - I can make a bit of a difference. AND YOU Win... make a difference in my life by sharing your thoughts and your lovely artwork. You are always a high point for me in a day when I see your name on my screen. Wishing you a HAPPY and BLESSED NEW YEAR with fun days of 'creating' in many ways... in your world! Big Hugs. j.
