Welcome to the New Year



















Now that we can put one year behind us, I think it important to be ever so grateful for what we have had, even though times are tougher. I don't know why I have been recently been thinking about this, but for some reason outside of Thanks Giving, I have been thinking about all that I have. I am sure there are many, if not most of you, who realize this on a daily basis. But as for me, it has now recently sunk in.

This Christmas, I can honestly say that I never went hungry...at all. There was so much yummy food the table was overflowing. Even though there is less money, there is more family. Even though we can't have everything we want, we have everything we need. Even though its cold outside, its warm in our hearts. When winter comes, Spring is around the corner. When it seems the worst, people bring out the best. Though it seems lonely sometimes, there are always those to surround us. Ans when the year is at its worst, we can look forward to a fresh tomorrow.

I don't know where that all came from, but its just something that has been on my heart as I reflect on this past year. So as you go through the last few days of the year and into the next, I hope that you will constantly reflect on what you have and the ones you love.

Happy New Years!

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires.
