Hey Sweethearts!  Well, I know it’s kinda early but I couldn’t not share this with you guys.  Let me just preface this by saying I get to work with some of the most amazing group of women.  My position has has allowed me the opportunity to build some wonderful relationships along the way.  One of these women is Sharon.  I can’t say enough about her.  She’s beautiful, loving, nurturing, fashionably fabulous…all the wonderful things you hope for in a friend, not to mention a co-worker.  Sharon’s been blessed with the gift writing.  She wrote poems for my son and daughter when they were born that brought tears to my eyes.  I honestly don’t think she realizes how powerful her thoughts on paper are.  I can’t wait for the day to see her works published.  I know that day is coming.  Well, from time to time, Sharon blesses the office staff by emailing us words of spiritual encouragement.  Here’s what she sent us today.  So right on time:

Happy New Year 2011!!!!

by Sharon DuBois

How many times has one year flown by, without my humble, wide-eyed

Amazement at the awesome wonders and blessings contained within?  Is it

Possible that I have forgotten about the seemingly small, occasionally overlooked, daily miracles??

Peeking a blind eye around a blind corner to the approaching tomorrow, neglecting the precious gift of all

Yesterdays.  Reminder to self:  Express genuine thankfulness for my family, friends, my job, which provides harvest-yielding seed, & All Praises to My Heavenly Father, whose   Grace abounds brand spankin’

New every morning, as evidenced by my health, life and strength.  With each drop of rain, and rising of the sun, I am made aware of the

Ever-present opportunity to do a “new thing”, a “new way”, with a “renewed mind”!!  No logical reason to

Whine or complain about difficulties along the journey, “JUST DO IT!!”  The sum total of each and every one of my

Yesterdays equals who I am today, and a new year sings of joyful additions to that

Equation.  Dear one, my wish for you, is not just a Happy New Year, but

An  amazing, awe-inspiring, ambidextrous (yep, blessings filling BOTH hands!) LIFE!!!      ALWAYS:

Remember how much I admire, cherish and love you!!!

HAPPY FOREVER!!!

See, I told you.  Isn’t she amazing?!?  Oh, and I did get permission to share her stuff all over the Internet.  lol
