HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!

If you would like an update on Margie, please go to http://connies-thoughts.blogspot.com As far me. Today I can finally say I am feeling good. I want to wish each of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. This year, I pray that we all make our commitment to lose weight a reality. I wish that I had more time but I do not as of yet. As soon as I can, I will be coming to visit you all. Thank you all so much for praying for me and my family. It is a blessing to have you in my life.connie


THE LOST CHANCES

Whenever I am starting out
Upon a fresh new year,
I always stop to think about
The one no longer here.
The year thats dead, I travel back
And let my memory run
In contemplation through the stack
Of things I could have done.

I check the deeds I meant to do
With those I did, and find
That I neglected quite a few
Real chances to be kind.
I learned the words that I meant to say
To comfort and to cheer,
And yet postponed them for a day.
I didn't speak that year.

And then to my disgrace I find
That had I paused to smile
And do those little actions kind
I'd not have lost a mile.
I learn now that the chance is gone,
That I have missed a lot,
For all those deeds I could have done
As eaisly as not.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO!! I haven't been making it around to everyone's blogs yet either. We have been so busy with so many things. We are having to make plans for our son's wedding with the things we are responsible for. I've posted about it over at Julie's Jewels so you can read about it there.

I hope to make it around to everyone's blogs very soon!! I've missed everyone!!
