Happy New Year!

 






HAPPY NEW YEAR BLOGVILLE!


I wanted to share with you a New Years Irish Blessing that Ma's Gma always used to say....


"Count your blessings instead of your crosses.

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes.

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears.

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full times instead of your lean.

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth.

Love your neighbor as much as yourself."



And from MOI.....




and.....




adios and good riddance!

    Lulu: "Oh right. Never mind then."
