Welcoming in The New Year & A Winner!


I'm hoping every one's New Year started off  with all things good.
For that is my wish to you for 2013.
A year of kindness, happiness, good health, peace and most of all love.
I'm looking forward to the year ahead
and the many changes I hope it brings.
I scared, but excited too.
 I'm ready to begin a new chapter in MY life,
to be happy.
I know that sounds so simple,
butI need to discover who I am,
something I've never had the chance to do.
I'm just hoping I'm not too old to figure it out.
Lots to ponder.

So as this New Year flys by passes,
I hope to think about my future
and become the person I want be.
Wishing all only good things for your future New Year!


XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXO
