Happy New Year!

 
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.

Thank you for helping me to get through a difficult year.  I am so grateful for all your empathy and support and so glad my son persuaded me to start blogging eight years ago come January.
 
I wish you peace, good health and love.
 
Back soon.  Keep the faith.
