Happy Birthday 2010!

Happy New Year!  I am so excited about this new year, this new decade.  I feel that so many good things are coming.  We really have no where to go but up!   I don't know what it is about the calendar changing over to 2010.  Is it the hope of a new day?  Is it because it's a new decade?  Is it because we are coming out of the worst economy since the Great Depression?  Is it because the new year rung in with a blue moon and a lunar eclipse?  Everywhere I turn, people are saying the same things to me, they can FEEL good things coming.  I feel it too.  Can you feel it?  It's practically tangible.

What makes you happy?



raindrops on roses?

whiskers on kittens?

bright, copper kettles...

or warm, woolen mittens?

How about warm cookies from the oven?

Blowing bubbles...

This kind?

or that kind?

How about balloons?

or birthdays?

Because this is the birthday (belated) of a new year.

Let's live in the present
Dream of the future
and know it's going to be a great!

 Make a wish!  This is the year for it to come true!

And don't forget to laugh.  Life is too short not to laugh.

Happy Birthday 2010!  May it be a great one!
