Happy New Year!

Hello my dear blogging friends, I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year. May 2012 bring you lots of joy, good health,  success, and may it be the happiest ever for you.
It's up to us, to make life the way we want it. A little at a time, day by day, we can make the choices that bring us our dream lives, the one we have always imagined. 
If not now, when?
sending you many blessings,
 betty
"I will seek elegance rather than luxury; refinement rather than fashion. I will seek to be worthy more than respectable; wealthy and not rich. I will study hard, think quietly, talk gently and act frankly. I will listen to stars and birds, and babes and sages with an open heart. I will bear all things cheerfully, do all things bravely, await occasions and hurry never. In a word I will let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common." - William Ellery Channing

Well said Betty! We truly do 'own' how we get through each day. We only have one of that particular moment/day and we owe it to ourselves to make the best of it.

Wishing you a very happy New Year!

In going forward with my goal of letting fellow Canadian artists I admire know that I lurk about their blogs regularly without commenting...I plan on changing that and supporting their amazing talents!
