"We shall never pass this way again"
Saturday, December 31, 2011
JUST 11 MORE HOURS AND ANOTHER YEAR WILL HAVE PASSED INTO ETERNITY. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the blessings and lessons therein, will have passed with the numbers 2011. The year may be gone, but what transpired in the old year will be with us, individually, and corporately, forever and ever. One of the blessings is that "We shall never pass this way again," and one of the regrets is that "We shall never pass this way again." I don't remember the author of that famous line, but my late husband adopted it as his quote in his HS yearbook many moons ago. MANY MOONS?! Nobody says that anymore !! I must be getting old! Yeah, time has a way of doing that to you! But I also like the saying "I'm not getting older, I'm getting better!" Think I'll go with the latter for today.
Oh, and before I forget, I made what will probably be one of the great decisions of 2011 before it passes; I have decided to forgo my private pizza party for tonight. I'm thinking to make myself a nice award corsage to wear today for that decision. (Considering that my feet are like balloons, and my legs like sausages, I just did myself a VERY BIG FAVOR.) So in 2011, I got maybe a little smarter, a little wiser, and learned to care for me a little better. Giving in to everything that spoiled little chubby inner child wants is not the way to go! The Mommy is in charge of me!
A HAPPY, HEALTHY, BLESSED NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY DEAR SPARK FRIENDS
