What a difference a year makes in one’s life, and I have so many people to thank for my successes and highlights. My youngest granddaughter, Mia, keeps me smiling as I watch and speak to her on Skype. Mia recognizes me by the cute facial goofy things I have shown her, and she does them in return. She loves saying “hi” and “bye”, and waves her cute little hand. I just want to hug and kiss her right there on the screen! I also marvel at her brother and sister who are equally smart and talented in their own ways, and I have come to love them as my grandchildren as well.
Sophia is approaching her 17th birthday and we have forged a good relationship of trust and friendship. I am hoping she will continue to excel in her school work. It would be an honor to attend her high school graduation in 2014.
My wonderful students in first, fourth, and fifth grades give me a feeling of genuine satisfaction as the teachers thank me for helping their students make progress. Their gratefulness for my help is genuine and heartwarming. I am thankful for my friends and instructors at the yoga studio and how invigorated I feel after doing these classes. It has taken years off my face and body, and my posture and skin show the awesome results.
In 2013 I want to volunteer more and help our children develop their self-esteem as well as become a trusting friend to them and reassure them and children everywhere that someone indeed does care about their welfare.
I would like to see people in my world valuing what they have and not taking anything or anyone for granted. My advice is that you don’t put off for a second that phone call, that “thank you” or those wonderful three words, “I love you!” Life is short to say, “no time … I will do it tomorrow.” We may not have that tomorrow, say it now!
Live for today and make it your best!
Happy New Year and may you all be healthy, happy, and caring for those in your life and for those who will come into your future days.
