Here's my thought for the New Year...

I was reading junk mail today on my way to the bank and a multitude of other errands when

I saw this quote from an old Finnish proverb ... "Happiness is a place between too little and

too much." I had been feeling badly that we were making too little money and spending too

much and how were we going to get out of this cycle - a cycle that I know is being shared by

so many of us in this scary economy. The quote made me realize that I was happy and that

while we may not have a lot it is still not "too little" and that sometimes having "too much" just

leads to gluttony and overspending. So I am determined to enjoy what we have, try to do better and life and love will prevail. I am attaching a picture of some letters I encrusted with shells to remind me of this ... HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
