Christmas is almost packed away, tonight is New Years Eve, tomorrow is 2016. I wasn’t going to write a blog. I mean, really. Who needs to hear about my resolutions (there aren’t any) or the things I’m happy to leave behind from 2015 (too few to mention), or how my husband and I will get all wild and crazy celebrating the holiday (dinner at six, asleep by 10:30)?
I changed my mind when I saw the message below. It came from a dear friend, the woman who wrote me my first fan letter over 25 years ago. I don’t know who wrote this piece. If I did I would happily give credit where it is due because this is the kind of thinking that gives me hope and attainable direction. It is written with words that make me smile. Whoever the author is, thank you. Your optimism is catching and this message cries out to be shared. So here it is, words from an unknown author, noticed by a friend, who sent them to me, so that I could send it to you. I couldn’t have said this better.
The Boarding on Flight 2016 has been announced. Hope you have checked in only the best souvenirs from 2015 in your luggage. The BAD and SAD moments if carried, must be thrown away in the garbage on arrival. The flight will be for 12 months long. So, loosen your seat belts, jingle and mingle.
The stop-overs will be :
Asterisk with eight spokesHealth,
Asterisk with eight spokesLove,
Asterisk with eight spokesJoy,
Asterisk with eight spokesHarmony,
Asterisk with eight spokesWell-being
Asterisk with eight spokesPeace.

The Captain (God) offers you the following menu which will be served during the flight:
White heavy check mark Cocktail of Friendship,
White heavy check mark Supreme of Health,
White heavy check mark Grating of Prosperity,
White heavy check mark Bowl of Excellent News
White heavy check mark Salad of Success,
White heavy check mark Cake of Happiness,
All accompanied by bursts of laughter…
But remember, you will enjoy these meals and the journey better if you talk, share, smile and laugh together. Sitting silent and sullen will make the flight seem longer.
Wishing you and your family Family an enjoyable trip on board of flight 2016…..
