Happy New Year!

It is ironic how man and his ability to think and make choices can complicate the simplicity of life. As we prepare to bring in the New Year, I don' t feed the need to do as I have years before and alter or change some kind of behavior, reach a milestone or set a new goal. This year I have to look at not what we can do but what we have done. I am ever grateful for the opportunities that have been granted to me. I look at my personal achievements, business adventures and a full range of emotion and the experiences of my trials and indeed tribulations. On one level I feel a sense of reward the beauty of life has offered and on another the troubled spirit that has yet not found its rightful path within the hemisphere of our very existence.
I am not concerned with what 2011 will bring nor am in a state of regret for that which I had not accomplished. I had this conversation with my sister and the statement of importance was with you stand tall to your beliefs, to your true inner being or you become a part of the dysfunction that surrounds you. How we determine which road to take, where to turn and what mountains to climb rest solely within our own being. Faith is that which is guided by the unknown, leading us by the heart and soul.
I have gained more than anyone can imagine, I have learned the importance of trust and how crucial it is in a relationship. I have experienced both respect and the lack of respect and definitely  respect puts us on equal ground and teaches us the value of ourselves and those around us. I have seen the trials of good and evil, love and hate and choose to allow only good and love in heart and next to my soul. I know what it is like to have some one believe you can and rise to every occasion. I have cried and I have laughed, felt my heart break and felt the mending of spirit. I have climbed mountains and stumbled and fell and dusted myself and got back up. I have seen the magic that paints your smile in every horizon. I have lived, loved, given and earned respect of my friends, customers and family. I rejoice not that a new year will come, but that my yesterdays were rich beyond any treasure known to man.
 Audrey forgot to put the flash on... but Happy New Year!
The Marshlands are a bitter cold,
the wind a might roar and as I
gaze into the waters I wonder
what life will have in store.

Snow along the banks, barely
an inch or two and the silence
broken by the dreams of all
my love for you.

Life would be empty and the
dark would replace the blue,
I would be lonely without you.

The days would be dreary and
the nights long if I didn't have
you and your love along.

Life would lack meaning with no
music in the air, it all would be
sad a filled with despair.

I am so glad that you are here
and there is nothing to fear.

Love brought you to me and now
that we are together life is as it
should be.

If I didn't have you, life would be
so blue I don't know what I'd do
if I didn't have you.
