Welcome to 2015

It’s time let go of last year and count my blessings.  It’s time to make a list of what I’m taking into 2015. Oh, yes, there has to be a list for that!

The blessings I carry over from last year include:

  • My husband, dear man
  • A large, supportive family of children and their partners
  • Grandchildren who love and spoil me
  • Beautiful great-grandchildren, who make me feel young
Great grandchildren keep me young and in love

  • My siblings who are also my best friends
  • Loving friends who fill my social atom
  • People who challenge me to be a better person, friend, grandmother, writer
  • A home I love. I enjoy that it doesn’t stay the same for long and I never know what will happen next.
  • The joy of walking and swimming
  • My garden, which is small, informal and much-loved.
  • Today the Pierre du Ronsart rose is my favourite. Tomorrow it may well be something else
  • Our beautiful Pierre du Ronsart rose welcomes 2015 this morning

  • Social media. What is not to love about it?
  • Writing, my work
  • The joy of discovering and trying out new things. This week I found the interrobang‽ (! +? combined). It’s a dear little punctuation mark, considered informal. I hope it becomes more popular
  • A holiday in the south-west of Western Australia planned for next week
  • Challenges that lie in wait for me during 2015. Life would be dull without them.

My list could go on and on. It’s much more fun than a list for 2015 of two or three resolutions that I know I won’t keep.

I wish you a New Year filled with joy, happiness and peace.

What excites you about 2015? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I am hoping for a better year too. Elizabeth Brennan has published her memoir I see.
    Good for her. Congratulations from me.
    Good to know you are in cyberspace.!! Love RosieXX

  2. Yes much better to count your blessings than list the challenges and elements of ones life that dissatisfy and become failed New Years resolutions:-)

    • That’s what I decided. Something I know about increasing the positive to make less room for the negatives. Have a happy, fulfilled New Year, Jenny.
