New beginnings, fresh starts. For some, resolutions to change something. The end of one year's joys and blessings, or sorrows and struggles. And the beginning of another year's hope for goodness and inner peace.

I'm not one for making New Years resolutions, they only serve to stress me out by putting too much pressure on me. If I feel the need to change something in my life I pretty much do so when I feel it is time. However, there are many who favour choosing New Years Day and the marking of that passage of time as the perfect choice to making adjustments in their lives.

To any of you who have made such resolutions, I wish you all the very best in your endeavours and choices!

For myself each and every year I pray for world peace, among many other personal things of course. Some of those are a cease to financial struggles for those close to me, for a much better economic outlook, and for good health for all whom I love and hold dear.

In the midst of our Canadian winter I could wish for green grass and flowers in my garden, but when I look outside and see the beauty of the sun making diamonds in the snow I am appreciative of all 4 seasons. Nothing I would wish to change there. Instead, I just look forward to new beginnings and hope that anything I would like to see changed will take place. And end to prejudice and hatred would be on the top of that list. Perhaps this New Year will be it!

For all of you, I wish you a healthy, and peaceful upcoming year. I wish you prosperity; of the spirit and also an easier financial time. Most of all, I wish you love, much much love.

Happy New Year!

Love Jude

Happy New Year to you and your family! I don't do a formal writing down of resolutions but I do think some about what I'd like to change. Of course the big challenge there is to keep them realistic. I think my first one is to get Windows 7 installed on my desktop PC. Successfully. It is in the process now while I'm borrowing Pat's PC to browse blogs.

Good luck with the Windows install Dick, and I hope you and Pat have a stellar New Year!

Happy New Year Jude! What happened to your old blog layout? I like this one though, very nice on the eyes

It's a few posts ago Danni, but when I had to go with Blogger comments (instead of Haloscan who is going to be no longer) they wouldn't work properly in my old template.

Happy New Year to you as well!
