images-2I’ve heard more than one person this week mention that  2013 wasn’t that “happy” for them. and if truth be told, they won’t be sad to see it go. So, you can imagine I found it interesting when I discovered that ’13 was, in the Chinese Calendar, the Year of the Snake. I guess you can say, those folks who don’t have such fond memories of the past 12 months won’t be sad to see the year slither off into the distance.
Life can be tough. Things happen. We can’t control that. What we can control is our reaction to problems, situations, temptations and more. Those are the things that are left up to us. We can make life good…if we so choose.
As we welcome in 2014, I want to focus on making life good. Happy. It’s my choice. And I’d like to be successful in that end.
In addition, I want to thank each of you, who have been so gracious to visit this blog whether daily, weekly or monthly.  Your comments and support have been nothing short of a delight. And I am grateful to call you friends.
For those of  you that are new friends, welcome. And may you come back often for some laughs, some trivia, a bit of history now and then, but most of all, some well deserved encouragement.
This blog wouldn’t be here without you, so again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
When you have a moment, leave a comment and share with us something you are looking forward to in 2014!  We’d love to hear from you too!
So Wishing you a wonderful and Happy New Year.
May God Bless You Richly. And, may God Bless America.
Stay Happy!
Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed (happy) is the 
man that trusts in him.
