Every September begins a new year for me. I take time to contemplate the past year and pray for the year to come.
I had my special day this last weekend. I’m another year older. The day was filled with love, laughter, and a specially cooked meal for my loved ones.
Gifts that touch the heart are those that I treasure most. They never come with a price tag. They fill your very being with a happiness that is unequaled. I find myself wishing these moments could last forever, but as the clock ticks they are replaced with the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I will bottle away the fragrance of this joyful day. And as my new year progresses, if I should meet with a rough patch, I will remove the stopper to my bottle and breathe in deeply the fragrant memories.
Wishing you all a Happy New year!
