New Year’s Eve

After an eventful day yesterday, And a surprise last night in the form of a chimney falling on my head as I was reaching for that elusive sleep, I am just grateful for warmth tonight due to a repaired chimney, and the blessings of friendships I cherish.

I wasn’t going to write today, but a dear friend got the Big “C” notice today, and while I am positive she will lick this easily as it has been caught very early, it simply reminded me to take that retrospective step tonight as I say goodbye to 2014.

I have always been blessed with magnificent family and friends in my life. I never take that for granted any more than I can take this magical place I live for granted. The sounds of laughter and the silence of the mountain tops help me be grateful for this mystery of life. Mine, like yours is special. I have had many lessons to learn this time around, and I am hopeful I have learned them well.

I look forward to tomorrow – and all my future tomorrows – with joy and wonder. I wish you all the same. May Peace and Joy be the rule for you and all of us in 2015.

  1. Kate, couldn’t have said it better and sure glad you got that chimney fixed.

  2. Hoping for continued health so we can continue to enjoy life.
    Happy New Year, Kate, and all of us.

  3. Paddy! How the heck are you? Did you retire yet? All of us from that PD era are retired, now, pretty much. Ran into Susan Swartz at CHOMP where she volunteers. She still talks a lot and fast. Best to you. Bigsurkate aka Kathleen (Graves-Shave-Galvin-Woods) Novoa

  4. Happy New Year Kate. Here is to more quiet times in January and ready for some more medium size storms with gentle and consistent rain to fill our rivers, streams and soak our lands. Here is to healthy joyful days of 2015 for all of us. Thanks for being you. Hugs.
