HAPPY 2012

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!


  1. From your lips to God's ears!!!! Here's hoping we both have better years this go round!

    Good luck with the splinter - that's gotta hurt :-(

  2. Happy New Year to you! I sure hope you can get that splinter out and all will be good. I start and end every year in the hospital but since I work there I guess it doesn't count! Looking forward to reading your posts in 2012!

  3. OUCH... bless your sweet heart! I wear contacts and sometimes get something under them AND it hurts! Hope all goes well with getting the rest of it out! I hope that this New Year brings lots of good luck and happiness to all of us:) Have a blessed day, HUGS!

  4. Hello ... it's nice to meet and follow you.
    stop by sometime.

  5. Dear Cheri,
    Happy New Year my dear! I so sorry about your medical woes, that splinter sounds just awful!
    I am so hoping our economy continues to improve and that we don't lose our middle class all together. I wish congress would behave too, they are about the bottom of the barrel in my book right now.
    And in Wisconsin I hope we get a new Governor because the one we have sucks! LOL.
    Great list, you have a lot of wisdom to share.
    Hoping that 2012 brings you much happiness!

  6. I made only one and that was to grow closer to my belief system.

    Otherwise the year has started well and not so well. My dog is ill and we are not sure with what.

    My heart doctor said my meds were working as well as possible and did not foresee surgery right now.

  7. Now, I do so love the 'wishes' idea!

    I stopped makin' resolutions years ago and just try to live each and ever day the best I can. Works for me!

    I hope your gettin' healed up fit as a fiddle. I can't imagine!

    God bless ya and have an awesome week sweetie!


Please stop and "chat" with me...I love hearing what you have to say!
