A Box of New Year Thoughts

I gathered some pretty things and collected some New Year thoughts.

I’m not celebrating the coming of 2011 as much as I’m REJOICING that I made it THROUGH 2010.

Some of you know what I mean.

You probably have many hopes and dreams for this year, too.


I’m going to try and aim higher in some areas.


Some areas need more improving than others.


I’ve felt like a tumbleweed this last year, blown to and fro in every direction except the one in which I wanted to go.


But I count my blessings and know that I need to be grateful.

Grateful every day.

And I need to give more.

Giving makes me grateful, too.

We all have gifts that lie dormant and need to be woken up and put to use.  Wake up gifts!



This New Year thought is for me.  To enjoy harmony in 2011, my mouth needs new discipline.


My box of New Year thoughts is full, and my heart if full of hope that it’s going to be a great year!

I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s weekend.







Happy New Year ♥

    • Thanks Missy! It only took an hour or so all in all–making the tags and gathering the stuff and then taking the photos. The idea for the post had just popped into my head completed so it was easy to put together. Thanks so much for stopping by, it means a lot to me as always and Happy New Year to you as well!
