Love and XOXOXOXOXOXO this 2010

My New Year wishes and prayers are aptly articulated by Neil Gaiman, and like him, I love using it every year.

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

…I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be,  be wise, and that you will always be kind.

-Neil Gaiman

A happy and blessed 2010 to all of us. The past year was a big challenge for most of us (a.k.a. it sucked royally), so I know 2010 will give us a respite from all the hardships and heartaches. Things can only get better.

More graces

I’ve thought of 2009 as a year of trials more than anything. And then God turns things around in the most unexpected way.

I’m going to be an Auntie for the third time.

A gift of life for our family that has been orphaned six months ago.

After all the trials, things can only get better.

Thank you, Lord.

 

 

Graces

This Child has saved me so many times.

God answers prayers in the most unexpected ways.

He shows His infinite grace everyday, and I am always amazed.

A seemingly insurmountable problem that almost crushed me about more than a month ago seems to be nearing a solution.

A miracle indeed.

He just needed me to have faith.

He just needed me to be grateful for all the blessing He has bestowed on me since birth.

Einstein knew what he was saying when he said that there are two ways to live your life — one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.

My life is a miracle.

If you need a miracle from the Infant Jesus, I’m sharing this prayer.

May you have the miracle that you need.
