Winding Down

It's snowing outside as I sit inside my cozy home having my morning coffee.
I've already fed the birds who gather each day at the bird feeders outside my kitchen window.
I'm thinking about this past year and all that has happened in my little world.
I'm thankful for my lovely home, my family and friends, and just the fact that I'm still here, looking forward to another year and whatever it may bring.
 Wondering if my cup will run over with joy,
 or be empty and sad.
I'm thinking of something a friend once said to me when I was feeling sorry for myself.
He said, "Life is what you make it."
I hope to make this year in my life a good one.

I recently read these words:
"It's better to be kind than to be right."

My goal is to live by these words as best I can.
I've spent too much time trying to be right and not enough time being kind.
Something that I regret every day.

Thank you to anyone out there who has ever taken time to read my blog!
May 2014 be your best year yet.
Wishing you all kindness, happiness and good fortune.

Where has the time gone?

I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner.
 I was upstairs wrapping gifts for my family this morning
 and looked at all the stuff on my desk
 and thought how I hadn't picked up my camera in weeks.
 So, I put a fresh battery in my camera
 and got some photos of the stuff on and around my desk.
 I hope you are all busy with happy holiday tasks
and making good memories.
