Should Auld Aquaintance Be Forgot ...!!

It's that time of year when we sing "Auld Lang Syne", stay up past midnight (normal for some of us night owls!!), reflect on "The Year That Was" and look forward with hope and optimism to "The Year That Will Be". It's a time to take stock of where we're at in life and decide if we need to be somewhere else. But for me, the end of one year and the start of the next is a time to count my BLESSINGS ... which are NUMEROUS and too many to list! :0) At the top of that list, though would have to be my FANTASTIC FAMILY, my FABULOUS FRIENDS and my BRILLIANT BLOGGING BUDDIES! :0) A super-duper-deluxe ...

BEAR HUG!!!

... to you all, wherever in the world you may be tonight!!

I'm not really one to philosophise (probably haven't even SPELT it correctly!!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) so I will end my blogging year with one of my favourite verses/prose ... An Irish Blessing ... that I send out to you all as my wish and prayer for you in 2011 ...



May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again ...
May God hold you safe in the palm of His hand.


Thank you all for being part of my 2010! I'm looking forward with hope, optimism and EXCITEMENT to you being part of my adventures in 2011 ... we're in for one HECK of a ride!! :0)
Til next time ... next YEAR! ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!
KRIS & SCOTT
(AKA Beloved Geek Boy)


(Please excuse the bags under our eyes ... this was taken at my work Christmas Brekkie and us night owls weren't 100% awake yet! Tee! Hee! Hee!)
