Hello 2013!

I always look at the first day of the new year as another chance for a new beginning.  It's a day that I look back at 2012 and thank the Lord for all His wonderful blessings and also a day to hope and dream of things to come in the new year.

One of my priorities that I always do (after watching the Rose parade) is pull off last year's calendar from the side of the frig and bring out my new one.  I then transfer all important dates from the previous year to each month so that I don't forget those special days - birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

And one thing dear to my heart is to make special notation of the birthdays of loved ones that have passed away.  I think it's extremely important to remember them in this way so that I can still wish them a happy birthday and reflect on their lives and how they touched mine.

May 2013 hold special blessings for you and your family.

What a good idea. I should do my calendar right away!

I like the way you remember loved ones. Jews say a special prayer for those they've lost at the annual anniversary of their deaths.

Happy new year!
