HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you! I do hope 2012 is our best year yet. 2011 was not my best year. It began with me having surgery (in Jan.) and ended with me being in the emergency room (Dec. 30) with a very nice young doctor trying to remove a SPLINTER from my eye…and it isn't the Smiley face kind! Don't ask me how I got a splinter in my eye because I have absolutely no idea. The dr. removed a small portion so that it is no longer uncomfortable but I am now waiting to get in touch with my ophthalmologist who hopefully will be able to remove the rest of the offensive foreign particle. I do hope 2012 will spare me any further medical traumas.
Last year (this post) I set forth some goals for the new year. Looking back on those, I see that I did manage to accomplish some of them…but definitely not all. I've decided not to set goals or make resolutions for this year. Think I'll just go with the flowJ
I do have some "wishes" for the New Year:
*that our economy will improve so that more jobs will be created
*that we will have wisdom enough to elect a great president who will lead us back to the roots from which our country began
*that we will get enough rain to make up for the deficit that we are experiencing (at least here in the south)
*that our society might learn to be more understanding and accepting of each other so that crimes against people would decline
*that each of us would be more caring of our earth and each other; that we would look for ways to serve each other
*that cures for cancer and other diseases might be discovered
I guess that's asking for a lot, but a girl can wish, can't she???
If you make resolutions, I hope you have the strength and wisdom to carry them out. If you set goals, I hope you achieve them. If you (like me) make wishes, I hope they come true. Have a wonderful year!
