~ Happy New Year~

 I think each one of us have "Reflections" of what our year was all about and what we want to see in the New Year..

As I traveled about Blogland this past few days I have seen all of you showing all the beautiful and great projects you did in 2011..I ran to my picture file and guess what?? I didn't do one project and complete it in 2011..I lost a whole year of doing nothing but trying to breath and get healthy..During this time I have thought about putting this blog to rest also...But this silly little blog of mine is truly a piece of my heart.I love seeing all my friends and reading all your posts...I love all of you guys, Thanks for being you, Thanks for taking the time out of your busy year and just "popping" in to say Hi!! how you doing Gloria!! Thanks for all your prayers, Thank you God for letting me have another year for a do-overs..As I lift my coffee cup to you I wish you all the very best in 2012...and may you all be just "Happy To Be"
My new quote for 2012
"No one grows old by living, only losing interest in living"

Until next year 
From my mountain to yours
Hugs and Smiles Gloria

Happy New Year Gloria! I love your words to live by, they are so true. I feel the same way here, not much to show and no real good reason to keep blogging but not ready to stop either. LOL! Wishing you a year of continued healing and good health!

Like you, Gloria, I've been recovering from two surgeries. (I was in the hospital for 70 days--25 in ICU.) I'm almost fully recovered now thanks to God answering prayers.

Just way late to pop in and say Happy New Year. I have a house full of company still and I am totally loving it, however it really does take away some of my visiting time with blogging. I hope you are well and have the most Blessed New Year Ever. Love ya. Hugs, Marty

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, I haven't had your health problems, but did you see any post from me about all of the projects I accomplished in 2011? Nope. I didn't accomplish anything, and I have no excuse, except laziness. You are such a sweetheart, and I'm so glad to have "met" you on RMS and to have continued our friendship through blogging. I am wishing you a wonderful 2012 on that mountain top of yours! Love ya, laurie

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think you had a much more productive year than those who completed lots of projects. I'm just glad you fought the good fight and are still here! I hope 2012 is much healthier for you.

Nezzy said...

Girl, everybody needs a few uncompleted projects to give the house that homey lived in feel. Heeeheheh!

I'm so happy to hear your feelin' better sweetie we just want ya to heal up to your old perky self my friend.

Sendin' big old hugs and prayers your way.

God bless and have a wonderful weekend sweet friend. :o)

lvroftiques said...

Ca-RAP Gloria!! How'd I miss your posts?! I could scream and pull my hair out.....but I haven't got enough hair to spare!
I hope you had a wonderful New Year. And having been so sick has got to put living each day in perspective. I pray that you're feeling so much better! I've been wanting to talk to you for ages, but things keep coming up with my wacky family....You know how that can be. It's been major freakin' drama-o-rama. Anyhoo girlfriend I love you! And I hope we can play catch-up soon! Vannaio
