What a lovely start to the new year! Happy thoughts of health, joy and compassion. I am so grateful to welcome in another year to help me fulfil my oh-so many hopes, dreams and aspirations. Thank You!

Indeed, yes, a wonderful way to kick in 2017… Sparkle! Bloom!

As we celebrate, let us remember family, friends, strangers, children, babies – all citizens of the world, no matter where they reside, regardless of race, colour and creed. Extend a warm, loving handshake of peace and kindness. For we are all God’s children.

Send a prayer out to those who are battling inner demons…may they find the calmness they are searching for.

Pray for….

…strength for those struggling with health issues…may they discover comfort and ease.

…courage for youngsters who are troubled by peer pressure…may they gain the confidence to stand tall.

Amen.

Here, I would like to include my special thoughts … Being sent out to everyone…

May God embrace you with His love and mercy.

May you enjoy good health and success.

May happiness be yours.

May your dreams be realised,

And your hopes and wishes too.

May His light shine upon your home,

To keep you and your loved ones safe.

Amen.

‘Tis the time for reconciliation,

A warm embrace and forgiveness too.

Treasure old acquaintances,

Welcome warmly new friends.

Cherish memories of the past!

Enjoy new experiences.

Have fun and celebrate!

Life is like a tapestry of magnificence..

That is interwoven with precious family and friends.

Allow compassion for everyone, young and old alike

Be strong in sorrow and steadfast in trials,

Let not setbacks discourage, but rather stir up fierce determination.

Value health, it’s His greatest gift.

Breathe the air and be thankful;

Thankful for the sense of sight, smell, taste, touch

And listen to the sound of the Joy of Life!

Accept the challenges,

Shoulder new responsibilities.

Dare to be remarkable!

Dare to be positive!

And, above all… Dare to be good!

May 2017 be your best new year.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

Peace. Love. Light.

God bless.

Covered with fluff and dust upon a shelf rests the list of New Year resolutions, its page yellowing with age. It is a stark reminder of all our hopes and dreams for the new year. Ah, how we aspired to achieve them!

‘The year is half over now,’ you sadly state. Wistfully, together with a tinge of guilt, you whisper ‘if only…’ and ‘I wish I had…’

Time has a way of moving swiftly and catching you unawares. But fear not, it’s not too late. You can still accomplish what you set out to do. All you need is perseverance, determination and a deep faith in yourself. Keep this important point in mind—you are a GIFT to the world.

So forget the regret, and, today, begin anew.

Firstly, take a stock of yourself. Look in the mirror. What do you see?

The Gift of Friends and a Blog Award

Hope you’re all having a super fantastic 2012, and, here’s hoping, also, that you’re sticking to your list of New Year resolutions.

My last year’s resolution was to get off all social network sites and to finally get a life…but that only lasted a couple of days. No surprise. Therefore, this year I have kept my NY resolution short, simple and sweet — ‘I want to be the best ME I can possibly be!’ So, fingers crossed.

As we celebrate, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading my blog. It’s much appreciated!

I truly value your comments, feedback and your visits to Maloquacious. Friends, family, fellow bloggers… Bless you.
