Opening the new year with hope and savoring the old one with thankfulness

Happy New Year 2011

I look back at an old year...
And I am thankful

I look ahead at a new year...
And I am hopeful

Like cutting into and savoring a beautifully ripe orange
Such sweetness was held in each of last year's slices of time

I cannot fathom what lies in store in each of next year's juicy slices
Pin It!


  1. Such beautiful and poignant thoughts. Hoping for good things in YOUR new year.
    Love you,

  2. How true...and so well put. I hope you have a wonderful 2011, Cindy.

  3. Happy New Year to you...and lovely sentiment!

  4. Your words...put together so beautifully, are a joy to me. I love the "beautifully ripe orange" and will think of them each time I enjoy an orange.

  5. Hopefully something lovely will happen...but doesn't it always? Somethind delicious is always out there if we look for it :) (Maybe it's at Disneyland :)

  6. beautiful words...
    and hoping this year is all you want and more,Cindy~
