Some Wisdom and Beauty for the New Year

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

Sounds like "no pain no gain." And that's so true in life, it seems. Wishing you the very best New Year, Sylvia!

Hello Sylvia, I think this is what I wrote today on my blog. A little darkness can make the light brighter. I love your Header - glad you're replacing the lion!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
