I have a prayer for you, my dear friends. And for me.

This year...
May you recognize your blessings.
May you experience wondrous growth.
May you take every opportunity to laugh
and never miss a chance to serve others.

May your challenges make you stronger.
May you have more tears of joy than of sorrow.
May your family be safe and happy
and your friends hold you near to their hearts.

May you grow and learn, laugh and play.
May you never forget to show love and to be grateful.
Most of all, may you go with God, and trust Him each step of the way.
Happy 2012, friends.

Such lovely wishes for the new year, and may you have all of these things also. Love your blog Relyn and although I rarely comment, have been watching you for over a year, and in fact, your blog actually inspired me to start my own blog. Think your blog site though is unsurpassed. Just love it! Blessings in the new year to you and your family
