between the old & the new . . .

Christmas has tumbled past in a flurry of happiness & contentment
wouldn't it be lovely if i could catch those moments in a delicate snow globe
to give it a gentle shake every once in a while & glimpse the magic over again

and now, here i find myself in this familiar old place
this kind of waiting space between the old & the new
a time for quiet reflection . . .
. . . wandering back over the happenings of the old year
my mind pondering some bits & musing others pieces

this has been a truly different & very lovely year for me. my 5 most precious things this year are : i proudly married the very wonderful mr O. i was given such opportunity to start working for me doing what i love most. my lovely niece Lou got her new kidney & is doing just grand. my 3 are all healthy & happy, i can ask for nothing better and finally, i started blogging ! & this whole new world opened up before my very eyes. I have learnt a great deal this last twelve months and now i am looking forward to the start of another. great excitement always fills me as it fast approaches, resolutions are scribbled down, must do's & would love to do's. i am ready to roll, here it comes, tiptoeing around the corner, so i am away to spend the last of this good old 2008 remembering & reminiscing, dreaming & planning and just being oh so thankful
wishing you all a very wonderful New Year,
may it be all you hope for in your heart
