Happy New Year Wishes...

As I reflect upon the past twelve months, I am reminded of all the blessings in my life. Those of you who know me, know that Handsome is at the top of my list, closely followed by our sons and their families. Friends and family whom I love and with whom I've spent time - and I can't forget the special blessings and new-found friendships that came my way simply because I chose to start a blog and share my daily life with you.

Special thanks to my blog friends Shell, Debra, Marcie, Brenda, Katie, Cathe, Karen V., Dawn, Sharon, Karen, Linda, Margaret B., Anne, Dee Dee, Barbara, Suzanne, Twyla & Lindsey, Paulette, Claudia, Jane, Maggie, Marydon, Sandi, Kari, Christine, Mary W., Beki, Kate, Jill, Damjana, Betty, and last, but certainly not least, my pal Loreen. My life is richer this year, because this collection of talented, intelligent and giving women are a part of it. (You can click on each of their names to visit their inspirational blogs.)

I also look forward to getting to know each of you better this year, and to making my blog a place that you can't wait to visit each day. Whether or not you have a blog, or just enjoy reading them, I look forward to getting to know you better, too. Your comments let me know you're out there, and I'm so grateful when you reach out to me to let me know what you think.

I wish for you and your loved ones all the blessings of love, peace, good health and prosperity in the new year. Thank you for the blessings you bring into my life every day. Happy New Year from Handsome, Kessie and me!

I found your blog through your friend and mine Margaret B. I enjoy reading blogs and it is my way of traveling. We don't get to do that much with my husband's health problems. I really love your blog. Happy New Year. A Missour friend, Shirley at shirleystitches

And I'm so glad to have found you this year too! I think I started reading your blog about the time you were calling out for acorns. Because now when I think of you, I think of your gorgeous needlework, your beautiful smile. And acorns! I will forever associate you with acorns.

I don't know why but your email isn't working on my pc when I click on it here. It just shows a dot in the address section. Could you send your address to kayinseptember@yahoo.com. I'm so discombobulated tonight. Sorry sweetie.
