Warm wishes for the New Year

I cannot begin to describe how much I look forward to 2012 and a new year, putting the second half of 2011 behind me… a new year – a new life.

And I wish all of you a happy and healthy 2012 – may it be like a long-awaited gift of something very special in your life.  For me, and for my breast cancer sisters, cancer-free health is the best gift of all.

This week we’ve been in Charleston.  Once again on the water (limited time for me due to the issues of Tamoxifen and my lower back…yet to be healed)…but glorious all the same.  And temps at the end of December in the mid-70s…. awesome.

We also tried a new biking trail system 2 days in the general area and had a wonderful ride.  I’ve discovered that when I was younger, I would ride as fast as possible.  As I “age”, I do still enjoy riding fast, but slowing at times to enjoy the journey and scenery.  I’m guessing true old age will be simply enjoying the scenery… but no longer hammering.  And that’s not so bad, is it?

Playtime is so important in our lives.  Friends and family also…  I used to say ‘there will be other opportunities” if I missed an event – now I know..there may not be….so live for today, everyday!  And my warmest wishes for a wonderful New Year.

    I think you’ve found something very important….’Playtime is so important in our lives. Friends and family also… I used to say ‘there will be other opportunities” if I missed an event – now I know..there may not be….so live for today, everyday! ‘

    For me, I find that almost every moment is different. So it’s not “live for today, it’s live for the present moment..” I don”t know if there will be another “moment.” And I want each moment to be filled with love, not fear. I think “true old age” will be smiling gently.
