We will open the book.  It's pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called OPPORTUNITY, and it's first chapter is
New Year's Day!  ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce

As we start this new year of 2012, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who faithfully follow my blog and have taken the time to leave a kind word of encouragement!  You have filled my heart with much joy by touching my life with your friendship!!

May we all begin this year with pen in hand, ready to begin a new story filled with much laughter and love!

Let the story begin.......

Dear Julie,
What a lovely idea, a completely blank book that we can fill with anything wonderful.
I feel inspired! Looking forward to following along your journey,
