Happy New Year ~ 2013!

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Today we close our 2012 “life book” and, from what I’ve seen, many of yours  have been filled with wonderful sights, memories to last a lifetime.  One of the pleasures of blogging is to be able to go back and reflect on where we have been, like movie clips of our lives.  My life has been enriched by bloggers worldwide who have offered up a wealth of suggestions:  books to scour, travel destinations to dream upon, spectacular photography, music that got me dancing around our rig, technology to enhance our lives, DIY project instructions, sound financial advice, and abounding inspiration.  I can’t thank you enough for your generosity.

Tomorrow we pick up a brand-new book, never opened, filled with blank pages.     What will you imprint on these pages in the upcoming year?  Whatever your plans, I hope you live your dream each and every day and share your passion with the world.  The Buddha said “the secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate problems, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”  My wish for everyone is for abundant good health, both mind and body.  I am not one to make resolutions that I may ultimately break, but this upcoming year I plan to see more sunrises, as I have discovered that standing in the delicious silence of early morning, wrapping myself in this wondrous sight, I feel very much in touch with a higher power.

Happy New Year everyone!  May you experience hope, great joy, and much lightness and love in the upcoming year.

  1. Happy New Year, LuAnn & Terry. We know this next year will be as eventful and exciting as the past one. Roger & Gayl

  2. Marsha took the words right out of my mouth, LuAnn, and I appreciate each and every post you have blessed us with since you have been on the road, but the most, this year. You have really blossomed with sharing your life and beliefs with us, your humble audience. May your life always be filled with love and contentment and sharing with others. Anxious to see you soon.

  3. Words of wisdom…thanks for sharing. I don’t think I could ever tire of beautiful sunsets or sunrises. Here’s to many, many more in 2013. Well wishes to you and Terry. Happy New Year :-)

    • Love the sunsets and plan to see many more of the sunrises outside the door instead of inside my cozy RV. Happy New Year to you both. See you soon! :)

  4. Lu Ann,
    One of the joys in our lives this year has been our growing friendship with you and Terry. Your New Year’s message is full of inspiration, thank you for sharing with us. Marilyn and Stan

    • Marilyn & Stan, It is said that people come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. We sincerely hope that yours is the latter. How blessed we feel to have spent these past couple of months getting to know you better! Let’s make a few more memories together before we move on from San Elijo.

  5. Happy New Year LuAnn! Wishing you many awe-inspiring Sunrises!!

    If I had just one resolution of my own it would be to – “get out of bed and soak up as many sunrises as you can”

  6. Luann, I so enjoy the way you express your thoughts. I have kept to my vow for 2013 so far, with regard to starting my morning with spiritual readings and meditation, and can feel a distinct difference in how I’m getting set up for the rest of the day.

    I’m up to four minutes of meditation already, having started with just two on Jan 2. I’d heard meditation was like a muscle – if you exercise it, it will get stronger. I can attest that yes, it is indeed getting stronger, even after just three days. I’m excited to see where it leads me in my life journey.

  7. You have such a beautiful way of putting your feelings. I’ve enjoyed all of your travels and will keep looking for more. Joyce

Would love to hear your thoughts
