Happy New Year!

Today on this last day of 2012 I received a very nice email from a friend in South Africa and I felt the need to share it with you all. Its such a nice way to bring in the new year. Take a look and enjoy.

Today, as we pass from the Old Year into the new, may we accept the following advice for a worthy New Year resolution and remember to apply these principles every day of the year:

**Smile at a stranger; listen to someone’s heart; hug a loved one.

**Tell someone you’re thinking of them. Drop a coin where a child can find it. Learn something new then teach it to someone else. Look a child in the eye and tell them how great they are.

**Don’t hold a grudge.

**Don’t be afraid to say, “I’m sorry.” Look beyond the face of a person into their heart.

**Make a promise and keep it.

**Call someone for no other reason than to just say “hello.”

**Show kindness to an animal. Stand up for what you believe in.

**Smell the rain, feel the breeze, listen to the wind.

**Use all your senses to their fullest. Cherish all your todays.”2 And send an email or two of love and appreciation to a friend and to a loved one.

May you and yours have a wonderful and prosperous New Year.

Happy New Year everyone and thank you for being along for the ride with me in 2012. I hope you will continue to stop in throughout the new year. Take care of each other and stay safe and healthy, remember don't drink and drive or text and drive. Enjoy your day.
