Happy New Year

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
~Maria Robinson

Just a few quick words to say "Happy New Year". 

I'm feeling a little blue today, my oldest daughter had to fly back to San Diego for school, and my sister and nieces left on Thursday.  Needless to say, that was two sad goodbye's at airports for me this week.

My sweet little nieces, I love them so much!

 I thought I'd be more used to having my daughter living away at college by now, but it actually seems worse.  In the beginning it was new and I was so excited for I'm still excited, but it's not so new and I know it will be a while before I see her again. 

Luckily, with technology the way it is, we can chat and skype to keep in touch.

I spent most of the day, besides a drive to the airport, taking down my Christmas decorations, so all in all, it was not the best 1st day of the year I've had.  My youngest is sick on top of everything else, so it's been pretty quiet around here.

I have had some time to think about what I want to accomplish this year, and even research some volunteer options...but I'll be talking more about that in upcoming posts.

For now, I'm considering my options and dreaming, as any good Dreamgirl should be doing in celebration of a new year.

Wishing you peace, love, and...

new endings!
Happy Thoughts and Happy New Year,



  1. Your nieces are darling! I know how you I I have to do something. I don't have the holidays distracting me any more.

  2. I love your posts Lisa, thanks for making my day. For some reason today your post brought tears to my eyes. I will venture to your world, and take Frank off to school next Saturday and I too will know how you feel. I still remember the day I dropped off Kristil after our disneyland weekend, I cried for a good hour after leaving her. One positive thing, our kids, our adult kids will be close by each other and that is what they have wanted. Keep good thoughts for me too, I will need it. God Bless you, and keep the blog a going. I love it.


Thank you for stopping by my blog, Happy Thoughts to you!
