New Year's is coming. Do you know what that means? It's time to make a New Year's Resolution.  Here are some inspiring words and some funny New Year's Resolutions. By the way next weeks newsletter I'm going to have an astonishing story about a couple who recieved an unforgettable Christmas gift.

"Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!"


How to Quit Smoking

Peter, at a New Year's party, turns to his friend, Ken, and asks for a cigarette.

'I thought you made a New Year's resolution to quit smoking,' Ken responds.
'I'm in the process of quitting,' replies Peter with a grin. 'Right now, I am in the middle of phase one.'

'Phase one?' wonders Ken.

'Yeah,' laughs Peter, 'I've quit buying.'



I will try to drive more careful.


I will pay more attention to my dog.


I will try not to buy useless stuff.


I will remember to put the gas nossel.


I will try not to park next to fire hydrants.


I will try not to interfere with games.


I will buy an actual motorcycle.


I will be kinder to my wife.

Everyone don't forget to make your New Year's Resolutions.

Welcome to the future!

Here it is!! Our day is just around the corner!! Now that the major holidays are over, we need to get busy on those books!! :-) I finished my Creative Memories Digital Scrapbook and ordered it. I'm hoping that it will be here by the 16th so you can all see how much fun doing a book on the computer is!! I know that there is so much more to learn but it was really nice not having all my scrapbooking stuff spread over the house!! I am hoping Mary Simon (Creative Memories) can join us and give us more details!!
