Happy New Year!

      Happy New Year! It is the start of a fresh new year... I pray we all have a fantastic year.

      I am determined that it will be great.

      At the check out lane at the grocery store, the lady ringing up the groceries said she sure hoped it would be a good year.

      I told her I was determined that it was going to be one of the best years yet.

      If happiness is a choice, I am choosing to be happy and joyful.

      There are many blessings to count.

      I know finances, the fiscal cliff , violence and in general bad news can bring us down.

      But today more than ever I encourage you to fight for that joy in your life.

      God Bless, and when I say have a Happy New Year, I mean it!
