Happy 2014

For a happy New Year, just stick to some simple and basic rules. Have faith in yourself and your abilities. Count your blessings before you cry on your misfortunes. Learn to take each day one at a time. Create opportunities for yourself for quitting is never an option. Above all accomplish all you take under your wings - never abandon without completion.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Our Christmas Celebrations have finished.  A quiet couple of days planned to recuperate from a minor bleed in my eye causing temporary vision issues and then on to face the New Year.
This past year we lost 2 very special members of our family, my dad in August and Arthur's dad in November.  We continue to grieve the loss of Granny a couple of years ago.
It has been a difficult couple of years but we have many things to look forward to in 2014. 
Aaron prepares to enter University and is busy with a very difficult Semester but next one will be much less stressful for him.   He continues his involvement with MedVents and hopes to pick up his voice lessons again in  February.
Jenna is doing well in school and will get back to skating in the New Year after missing her "Baby Blues" dance test due to an injury.
Arthur continues to deal with his father's death as executor of his estate and still enjoys his job.
I am continuing on my weight loss journey and had a very successful 2013 thanks in part to an at work group through Weight Watchers.  I am feeling much better and have an extensive wardrobe I can now fit into again.
Aside from minor issues we have enjoyed a year of health.
Aaron. Jenna and I were fortuante to have been able to visit the Big Apple and spent 10 days in New York City seeing the things I always wanted to see.
Not sure what 2014 will bring us be we wish you all a happy and healthy New Year.
