Another Year Begins

Didn't the new century just start a few years ago? Are we really about to start the 15th year of the 21st century? 

I watch a movie from the 1980's or 1990's and it seems so recent, until I realize it is several decades old, and considered "old school" by so many people. 

Oh well, not to worry. As I enter into my 15th year of a satisfying retirement I have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to, even if I am in a bit of a personal funk at the moment while I look for a new spark.

My wish for you is a joyous year with as many positive occurrences and as few disappointments and problems as possible. 

Fill 2015 with family, love, memorable experiences, and making the world around you as joyful as can be. If you are struggling I pray that the new year lightens your burden, or gives you the strength and attitude to persevere.

Be safe and be well.

Bob, Betty, and Bailey


  1. Bob, I can identify with you...a few days ago, I watched an old movie from the 70s and I could identify with it much more readily than some of the new releases. Thank God for my kids, because they keep dragging hubby and me along as times change. I, too, am extremely grateful for life with all its twists and turns. God in His infinite wisdom knows what lies ahead, and that brings me hope and peace for 2015! May He be with you and your family.

  2. It will be a good year in 2015, Bob. I have a lot of faith that even with the twists and turns thrown at everyone, most if not all will experience a wonderful year.

    Best wishes to you, Betty, and your whole extended family.

  3. Happy New Year to you ,Betty and Bailey! I look forward to your posts and gain a lot of insight and encouragement.I time for the starting off 2015 with some new, refreshed goals. 2014 was all about getting settled in our new home.-- a major move takes WAY MORE energy and time than you think when you start it!!! It's all good.

    Snowed in for the first time in 30 years-- not sure how I feel about that! It's like a winter wonderland up here right now-- Ken is in his GLORY! I will be visiting the Valley in 2 weeks for a good dose of sunshine.. best of both worlds...
