How Often We Wish For Another Chance

Thursday, December 31, 2009

HOW OFTEN WE WISH FOR ANOTHER CHANCE

How often we wish for another chance
To make a fresh beginning.
A change to blot out our mistakes.
And change failure into winning.
And it does not take a special time
To make a brand-new start,
It only takes the deep desire
To try with all our heart,
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving,
To add a little sunshine
To the world in which we're living.

So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there's always a tomorrow
And a chance to start anew.

~Author Unknown~


We are about to ring in a new year! Let's start anew and make it the best year ever!
Happy New Year's to all!

    What a very heartening poem for the new year! Thanks for taking the time to post it for us...and thanks, too, for welcoming me to the SP Community Team :) What a beautiful name - Willow! It's one of my fave words in the English language, just for the way it sounds. All the best to you in this coming year. I think it holds lots of promise for us! - Susan

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Thursday, December 24, 2009



This
year
I would
like to put
up a tree in my
heart, and instead
of hanging presents,
I would like to put the
names of all my friends.
Close friends and not so close
friends. The old friends, the new
friends. Those that I see every day
and the ones that I rarely see. The ones
that I always remember and the ones that
I sometimes forget. The ones that are always
there and the ones that seldom are. The friends of
difficult times and the ones of happy times. Friends
who, without meaning to, I have hurt, or without meaning
to have hurt me. Those that I know well and those I only know
by name. Those that owe me little and those that I owe so much.
My humble friends and my important friends. The names of all those
that have passed through my life no matter how fleetingly. A tree with
very deep roots and very long
and strong branches so that
their names may never be
plucked from my heart. So
that new names from all
over may join the existing ones. A tree with a very
pleasant shade so that our friendship may take a
moment of rest from the battles of life. "May the
happy moments of Christmas brighten every day of
the new year". These are my sincere wishes.

With all my blessings,
Willow

I wish you a day of ordinary miracles...

Friday, December 11, 2009



A fresh pot of coffee you didn't have to make yourself.


An unexpected phone call from an old friend.


Green stoplights on your way to work or shop.


I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in...


The fastest line at the grocery store.



A good sing along song on the radio.


Your keys right where you look.


I wish you a day of happiness and perfection-little bite-size pieces of perfection that give you the funny feeling that the Lord is smiling on you,
holding you so gently because you are someone special and rare.


I wish You a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.


Wishing you the very best for 2010!
