Tonight our family will welcome in the new year with a table laden with what my Grandpa Ingalls called “pickens”. We will have shrimp cocktail, crudités, yummy cheeses, meats and sparkling cranberry cider. Oh and the boy requested bagels bites. (smile) So much for classy eats.
I don’t make resolutions, but I do believe in wishes. Top on my list this year? I hope that I will always be open to situations in which I can be a blessing to others. (The video is a bit dark, but the message is bright.)
Later on our family loaded up in the car to go view all 7,500 luminaries in the neighborhood and it appeared that Rudi the dachshund was the most excited. Please pardon our snorting and obnoxious laughter.
I am thrilled to begin a new year and hope that it will be filled with friends, family, health and happiness for everyone.
