a gift of a new year




a new year
now that is something to smile about


I am going to try really hard not to waste
 a single
teeny tiny itty bitty day
{as they race by}
 this year

"Teach us to make the most of our time,
so that we may grow in wisdom"
{Psalm 90-12}


hope you are making the most of your new year days so far

I certainly am making the most of these quiet and homey days as I take care of my back! Oh dear one, prayers are working as I am feeling so much better! That little squirrel's smile makes me laugh, and I think HE knows something we don't know...I wonder what he has up his little sleeves!

Wishing you a year of unwasted time, creativity, and new vision...I am so excited for YOU! Love, love, love - Anita

They do seem to race by, don't they? Love your sweet little chipmunk (or squirrel?) - he does make me smile! Thank you for the sweet reminder to enjoy each precious day.
Hugs xo

Funny you mention this ……. my thing for 2014 and forward is to stop wasting time and keep things simple. Simplicity is what I want to accomplish more. Love love love that squirrel!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

KORALEE! I was just about to write you and I see you came over to my blog!

Oh so much to tell...but the first thing I want to say to you is:

T H A N K Y O U.

Your kindness and supplications have reached the skies...I AM SO MUCH BETTER! Now I just have to take advantage of this weekend and Monday (no school) and keep on resting. I have not engaged in my usual rigorous exercise program and have rested enormously. God has heard your prayers! I am also praying for all of your new adventures in the new year to be grand ones!

You know, we just got a notice yesterday that all the schools (my husband's university as well) will be closed on Monday due to the forecast: -50! Can you imagine that? So no school!

Stay warm my friend. We all need to wait this one out; this is a bad winter for sure.

LOVE!!! Anita
