I grew up in the city, moving to a new city every 4-5 years. I finally settled in Texas in my early 20's and I have been here almost 30 years!

I thought I would share pictures of my Aussie Shepard Tess. Here she is as a puppy....
She has really helped me cope with the passing of my sweet old Lab, Samantha..

I have a new lease on life, renewed faith in others and myself. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself.
No, I haven't won the lottery or been given a big raise, I am just very blessed with a great family and super friends that makes me want to be a better person.
The last several years I did a lot of soul searching, digging down to see who I am and what I am suppose to do with my life. I am still not really sure what I am suppose to do, but I do like the direction that I am headed. I feel content and safe. Loved and respected. I feel like I can relax some and just enjoy each day as it comes. I guess with age comes wisdom. I am not so worried about the things that are out of my control. I can't make the sourpuss lady in the office happy, I can't stop idiots in traffic from cutting me off and I can't stop the ignorant from saying stupid stuff but I can wake up each day and be thankful for all the good things in my life. I get up way too early, but I get to see the most amazing sunrises, falling stars and birds taking the first flight of the day. It is a quiet time that many take for granted. I adore that time to reflect on what I have to do that day, put things in priority and perspective. And to say a little prayer for the world around me...
As far as New Year's resolutions....get in shape, cut out the caffeine, get more sleep.....(who am I kidding??) I guess my resolution is just to keep on keeping on...
Happy New Year everyone!
