Honey, I'm Home's Morning Mantra ~~ Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh NO, She's up!"

New Year’s Wishes ~~

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance - and include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

And may we live in a world at peace and with the awareness of God's love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

I am so happy to have all of you in my life. You are a loved extended family, and in my case, my only family so that makes the love even greater.  Here’s hoping that 2011 will be a year of prosperity and abundance in all facets of our lives.

  1. What a lovely posting, Jenny, and what wonderful well-wishes you offer your blogging family!

  8. Well said, my friend and extended family member - bless you for brightening all of our lives - and just know I will be raising my glass to you at midnight tomorrow (if I'm still awake)
    C L I N K - here's to a fantastic 2011 for each and every one. Sending many hugs and blessings from snowy Arizona (love it - second day of being snowed in !!)

  9. You warmed my heart with this Jen. I love ya too and we are so lucky to have a blog family who sometimes cares more than a real family. Now no driving if you partake of those martoonies ya hear? I wouldn't want you stuck in ah restroom stall and can't git out!!!! Oops, shouldn't tattle right?
    I wish you (rubbing my crystal ball here) an extrodinary supsercalafragalistic new year to win the big lottery and wait...there's more...dropped my post-it...... oh well you will find out for yourself all these wishes I have for you to come.

  10. You covered it all well, what else can I say but I wish the same for you?

  11. Happy New Year my dear dear friend.
    Love Lisa

  12. Warm fuzzy wishes of good health and happiness in the coming year.
    Here's a toast that I offer each New Year:(Best delivered with an Irish brogue and good KY Bourbon!)

    When I'm in a sober mood,
    I worry work and think.
    When I'm in a drinking mood,
    I gamble, screw and drink!

    But when my time is over,
    and my time has come to pass...
    I hope they bury me upside down,
    So the world can kiss me ass!

    Happy New Year sweet girl!

  13. What a beautiful post. You're such an awesome friend and I feel so priviledged to have met you here. You make me want to strive to be better, and always always touch my heart with your posts. And not just mine, you are as kind as they come and I can honestly say I love you Jen. Happy New Year. (Haha at Dave's toast)

  14. Dear Jenny, I loved reading this post as I finished the last of my morning coffee, and now heading off to work for the last time this year.
    I wish and pray all these things you mentioned for you as well. I am so glad we met and became friends this year. All the Very Best to you my friend. Love and Hugs. Dianne :)

  15. I LUV Dave's toast - hope he doesn't mind if I copy it !!

  16. Me and the Admiral here, Jenny. Happy new Year and many many warm hugs and kissies on the jaw from her and me.

  17. And we love you. And Sammy and Lucy. Thank you for allowing me to admire Sammy, Lucy. We, you and I, are sistahs!

  18. Happy New Year! Nice to know I'm family!(Am I the older sister or the younger?!!!!!LOL!)~~~Jackie~~~

  19. Hi Jenny, as a true Scot I send Happy New year greetings after the stroke of midnight, so HAPPY, HEALTHY AND STRESS FREE NEW YEAR. I love your posting it leaves none of us with much to add does it, but I/we wish you the same.
    thanks for dropping by, cute little pic eh? I just love finding these little gems., and hope they make someone's day just a tad brighter.

  20. It shows you how my dreams have withered when I tell you that I would settle for the blessing you mention that the ads not be louder than my programs.

    As to saying, "I love you", I think I am going to try a new strategy - saying it to everyone I meet: the meter man (who isn't bad!), the people at the gas station, Sam's Club, Lowe's - the people stopped next to me at the red light - even the christians I meet. No one deserves to feel entirely secure in this day and age.

  21. Ahhh I love this blog! Happy New Year sweet Jenny!

  22. Good one Jenny! Thanks for the New Years wishes and I want to wish you a Happy New Year too! I'm so glad we became friends last year.
