Happy New Year!

It's a beautiful first day of 2012 where I am. Last night we celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary with a few special friends, old and new, and one of them quoted from this poem by Robert Browning:

GROW old along with me!

The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in his hand
Who saith, ``A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!''

I hope 2012 brings you peace, health and happiness and the chance to bravely and trustingly reach for your dreams.

And here's a pic I love of my grandson Tom and his dad in Paris for New Year, and appropriately overawed.

The best is yet to be...

Happy New Year.
Looks like the pic has been taken in the Sainte Chapelle; did they enjoy their stay? The weather was gorgeous this year. Fortunately they didn't visit last Christmas. We were covered in snow. It was a disaster in the Paris area.

Brigitte, they had an amazing time. They saw all the highlights of your beautiful city. I was so happy that everything went so well for them.
They had New Year in Paris and Christmas in Prague and were actually disappointed that it didn't snow.
For Ozzies, snow is a wonderful novelty!
