This Year Is Coming To A Close

 This post was written one year ago at this time.   Guess my sentiments and words are the same
Except for the fact holiday time was spent recovering from some kind of virus.   Also 3 days ago a wisdom
tooth was pulled.   I was nervous but it turned out no different then any other tooth that was
pulled.  A sunny and unseasonably warm day and looking forward to energy returning.
In years past my little girls would spend New Years Eve with me.     The youngest has a bad cold so
 mom and dad will be home with them this year.


December 20l0.....
For all who read and sometimes comment on my journal - thank you.

No words can express what it means to this One Woman. You encourage her with your comments. She would start naming names but do not want to leave out anyone. You have become special friends. Writing, camera and computer have become an important link to the world outside of her woods.

A busy year with move to the country, garden, camera, a home sold and adjusting to the beginning of a lifestyle she use to live.

As a journey is shared - for pleasure and family, it may just give some an idea of One Woman's journey through this continuing process of aging. She is well aware that her path is totally different from that of her mother and grandmother's. Yet one trait is evident- they were strong women and she is sometimes referred to the same way.

New Years Eve and day will be spent with two youngest granddaughter's.

In the New Year that is about to begin ...

May you be Happy
May you be Well
May you be Safe
May you be at Peace

Today notice five recurring thoughts that take you away from your life as it is.
Write them down. When you have a chance, burn the paper lovingly, and let those thoughts drift away with the smoke ~~A Year Of Living Your Yoga~~

Happy New Year Dear One! May the year to come be rich in blessings for you as you continue to grow in compassion...blending your humanness with your Divine essence...merging, flowing into the ONENESS that we all are. Your friendship and continuous support means the world to me.

Happy New Year! Raise a glass to us!!!!

Tabor said...

What a nice gesture...perhaps I should try that. You have done more in a year than many do in a decade. Be proud.

Freda said...

All good wishes for 2011. Thank you for sharing your life with us online readers.

Happy New Year to my other Mama! After the year gets going, I would love to come for a tour and how about lunch at the drug store??

One Woman's Journey said...

Amy, that sounds wonderful.
Please visit now and in the Spring to see what my beginning garden offers. Best wishes to you and yours, with love.

I wish you a New Year of more strength, like a mighty tree, her roots running deep into the earth.

One Woman's Journey said...

Dear Kaveri, thank you - yes strength is needed. But maybe the ability for one to pace herself and think on this "what is the hurry"...

I did it! I jotted down five things - things I don't like (for ex. sitting too much), just little things but things that do stop me. And then I threw my list into the wood stove. I feel better already. :<) And my word verification: ables. Wow.
