Turning of the Page....

My next 30 Years...{...30 seconds...30 minutes...or...30 days... whatever I have left, here....}
 I Love this song...and it is so fitting, for New Years Day...When we stand at the Crossroads, of this Journey, called Life....make resolutions...reflect...and face the unknown... I jotted down some of the lines, I love, in this song....
 In my next 30 years....
 I'm going to celebrate my age...the ending of an era...the turning of a page....
 Focus in, on where I go from here...Lord, have Mercy, on my next 30 years...
I'm gonna have some fun...
Try and forget about some of the Crazy Things I've done....maybe now, I've conquered all my adolescent fears... I'll do it better in my next 30 years
 I'm going to watch my weight
The next 30 years, will be the best years of my life...
I'll Settle all the Scores...
Cry a little less...Laugh a little more...
 Find a World of Happiness... without the hate and fear...
 Figure out just what I'm doin' here, in my next 30 years...
Spend Precious Moments with the Ones, I hold Dear...
Drink a little lemonade, and not so many... {ah...anything that can hold a flame...}
Make up, for lost time here....in my next 30 years...

Well...those are my Goals..for the New Year.... I feel o.k., with some of the Mountains, I climbed, in 2010... I quit smoking... bought Sally...{something I have Dreamed of, for 30 years...}been eating healthier...let my hair grow...tho, there have been some rough waters...held the Ship together...{one day at a time...Thanks to God...and The Angels, that are always hovering...{some, with singed wings...just like mine...}

2011 is sure to be a Wild Ride... I wouldn't want it, really, any different...This is a 'Journey'... and you learn much more, by climbing, and falling...than sitting on a rock....{remind me, I said that, when my heart is broken....my body is badly bruised, and beaten....as I'm looking up, and asking...'why'....}
Hope You all have a Wild Ride, this year......Just...Hold on Tight...it hurts when you hit the Ground!
Happy New Year...
Barb C.
{Oh,...and...you will, hit the ground.... but...there are Always..Always...Angels, right there, with a hand outstretched...take it... get up... take hold of 'life's' Mane... Swing up...grab the Reins...and put the boots to it! }

Without a doubt, the finest hopeful and uplifting New Year analysis that I have ever read! Barb and John are two of the finest individuals that ever walked this earth and that comes from an "old codger" who has dealt with people from all walks of life for a long, long time. Both of them have the rare ability to find something funny to say even when things look bleak. With your patience, understanding, compassion and kindness 2011 will be a great year! HAPPY HAPPY

I Must Say...This Song, Truly Says it All!
And...to Anonymous...
We don't 'know' any 'Old Codgers'...Just...Extremely 'Cool Cats'!
and...Wonderful, Caring Souls...
We are Humbled...and 'Honored'...
Our Love, to You...and...
May You Have The Most Amazing Next 30!!!
