Peace to my soul

What a beautiful week it has been with the moon full, frosty nights & sunrises that makes everything sparkle like diamonds. I took a little ride in the ranger the other night to talk to my best friend & yes it was Danny. While sitting in the cemetary, from his headstone looking east down over the town of Randolph, it looked like a fairyland. I was looking through some trees with bare branches at the big full moon, it was a sight that certainly was breathtaking. I could have stayed there all night except it was pretty cold. I had a few thoughts that I wanted to share with Danny, I'm so thankful for the calming & peaceful scene that I was able to pertake of. It certainly brought peace to my soul & answered some of my questions I had. I'm so thankful for a new year to look forward to the adventures & experiences it will bring to everyone. I'm sure some will be good & some not so good but without the unpleasant experiences we would not appreciate the good ones. I'm not sure where the time is going but it seems like it's sun up & then it's sun down. I have been accomplishing lots of cleaning up, throwing away & taking care of some matter that was unorganized, it is looking better. I've been going through lots of pictures & taking care of them in the books they need to go in. My thought for tonight "Hope Happiness & Courage" Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes solutions; knows about difficulties but believes they can be overcome; sees the negatives but accentuates the positives; is exposed to the worst but expects the best; has reason to complain, but chooses to smile ---William Arthur Ward. May the coming week bring a smile to everyone's face & may we all know that life is precious & good. cp
