2013 has been filled with challenges, some more difficult than others, with a few milestones that made us proud. Two painful losses and a few that filled our hearts to overflowing… As A. A. Milne so poignantly wrote “Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
Over all it was a wonderful year as I continued to learn how to live my life to the fullest no matter what!!! That’s the trick I’ve learned and yes it has taken me 66 years to put it into practice… just one of the perks of living a long life.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this. ~ Henry David Thoreau
"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra.
In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless." ~Victoria Moran
and there’s reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last…
