How perfect to have my first post as The Blissful Thistle on New Years Day- a new beginning. I give credit to Brad Paisley for these words of wisdom and encouragement “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
How true is that? New Years evokes so many deep emotions for people. And I confess that I tend to get a little emotional on New Years Eve...For me it is a time for reflection of the past year's accomplishments and challenges and it is a time of thanks for all those accomplishments and challenges. I have much to be thankful for.
New Year's Day for me is a bright, new beginning and I welcome it- even on a day like today when the clouds loomed and my house is the opposite of orderly and organized (I thought about posting a picture of my closet to illustrate this point!).
My wish for you all in this New Year is that no matter where you are in this roller coaster of life, that you please accept today as a new beginning. A new, fresh book full of 365 blank pages just waiting to be written on. Your book will inevitably have pages that will have sadness, anger and maybe even regret, but your book will have pages of joy, hope and laughter too ( I wish you many, many of these pages). Remember that while God knows your story, You hold the pen, you choose how this story of your year is told. It's a good book-enjoy writing it!
Many Blessings & Happy New Year!~SarahCate~
