Welcome 2011

Tonight as I walked outside to the sound of fireworks at midnight ,
our street was quiet but there was the distant sound of cheering & people laughing ,  
the stars clear & bright , my family tucked up safe & asleep.
It was a moment of reflection of the year that has passed , 
the loss of dear family members who are missed.
I am looking forward to the year ahead & all its fresh possibilities. 

Thankyou to all who have left lovely comments this year
& to all of you who have shared your life this year
It has opened up my life to a window of the world & while I didnt accomplish 
all that I hoped , I thought does it really matter ?
As the saying goes 'stop & smell the roses'
as we do not know what is around the corner.

Please give a prayer or help if you can to all the people in Qld who are currently affected
by the devastating floods. I cannot imagine having to flee my home & leave everything behind.
