Rugs and tile will soon be replaced with new dark flooring.
My new entrance.
Not only into my home, but into a New Year. Prospects on the horizon,
of "THE NEW" seem inevitable with those in my midst. For years not many major changes entered my world. Things would break down, remain unfixed. A makeshift attempt to repair things, or do without was prospective of the past. Many friends seemed to be having damnable luck until the later part of last year too. Things started shifting. Drastic changes occurred. Sadly some deaths, loss and illness, also the birth of new adventures, new real estate, new lifestyles, renovation, settlements and best of all new life!
Many friends and relatives have acquired something new in a major way. I contemplated a word for 2010 like I do every year. After tossing out a list of words I concluded "the new" would be positive perspective for the new decade. I've finally figured out how to structure a greeting card, a few rooms have been repainted, I have a new stove. "The New" seems more like an experience, a feeling, rather that just a single item.
This may seem silly to some, but last summer I stepped in the house after
barbecuing, an overwhelming feeling of prosperity came over me. I voiced
to my daughter, life would be more prosperous as it was previous to becoming a single mom fourteen years ago.
New years eve was spent with my dear friends of almost twenty four years and their new twin girls. The healthy little miracles born after the death of two disabled siblings within twenty four months. We shared a nice meal, played cards and fed babies....it was so special and a perfect way of turning a new leaf into Twenty ten!
