a day of first’s…my first vanilla steamed milk with caramel on top.served in my favourite Tim Horton’s mug...made by my wonderful husband..
our first walk on the dyke in Pitt Meadows..
a day filled with reflections..
…and a group of neighbours burning their Christmas trees..
our fine looking boy..waiting for the ball to be thrown…and Doug wearing his four layers of clothes…a bit cold is it???
and the last first of today..you all know what it is…
yes..a swim for the ‘crazy golden’..he made his own ‘polar bear swim’ for New Year’s Day…
so as our day of ‘frosty reflections’ draws to a close..the remnants of Christmas have been stowed away until it is time to unpack them again…the house is back to some sense of normal…
my motto for the new year..
“Think positive, be happy, let the Universe do the rest.
Life can be hurtful, and not always fair.
Life can surround you, with people who care.
Life clearly does offer, its ups and its downs.
Life's days can bring you, both smiles and frowns.
Life teaches us to take, the good with the bad.
Life is a mixture, of happy and sad.
Take the life that you have, and give it your best.
Think positive, be happy, let the Universe do the rest.
Take the challenges, that life has laid at your feet.
Take pride and be thankful, for each one you meet.
To yourself give forgiveness, if you stumble and fall.
Take each day that is dealt you, and give it your all.
Take the love that you're given, and return it with care.
Have faith that when needed, it will always be there.
Take time to find the beauty, in the things that you see.
Take life's simple pleasures, let them set your heart free.”
