If Our Pets Made Our New Year’s Resolutions
While people have been making their own new year’s resolutions, I decided to let my dogs, Sanchez and Gina, make mine for me. Here’s what they had to say:
- Take more walks (with us)
- Spend more time at the piano (We love sleeping under it while you play.)
- Take more breaks from the computer
- Remember to play (especially with us)
- Make more dog treats for us
- Brag about us every day
- Perform more concerts for dogs
- Be patient with me in my senior years (from Sanchez). I’m giving you an opportunity to slow down and remember that every moment in life is a gift.
- More agility training PLEASE (from Gina)
- Help more homeless dogs
If your pets made your new year’s resolutions, what would they say?
Oh, what a beautiful, beautiful day it is here? The sun is shining brightly, not a cloudy in the sky, looks like a perfect day to go run in the field. Till you look at the temperature gauge out the window, it is just 22 degrees out there, golly gee! I had some errands to run yesterday that is why the Countess filled in. It was suppose to be about 28 degrees yesterday. I had on a tee shirt and a sweater and it felt fine to me. I know Kiki loved it to pieces. She has her own little bed in the truck (not spoiled at all). When she gets in the first thing she does is rut around in the bed like a little baby pig. I guess she thinks there has been somebody sleeping in her bed!
Well can you believe it, the first week of the New Year is almost over. Before you know it, we will be saying goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014. Really I hope not. I have made one New Year’s Resolution this year, it is to stop and smell the Roses. I mean really smell them. You know sniff in all the pollen and everything, lol! I guess I took something away from last year, never, ever take any minute we have in life for granted. Every little second is precious, oh, so precious. I have learned the meaning of “I’m going to seize the day!” I use to scratch my head at that one. Now I know, get up in the morning and live the day like it was your last one. I also learned something else, cherish your memories and hold your loved ones in your heart always. For as long as they live in your heart, they are never truly gone.
Before I take down the New Year graphics, I have one last blessing for the New Year. I wish everyone of you a very Happy & Blessed New Year. A New Year full of love, family, joy, comfort and most of all peace. Peace to you my family and Peace to the entire World.
Goddess Bless You,
Oh, Great & Glorious Mother,
At the start
Of this New Year
When thoughts turn again
And turning skeletons
Free from cupboards
Be with us
As we gaze into the distance
Of fresh mission grounds
Of hopes and dreams
Opportunities for service
Take our fears
And turn them into strengths
Take our lack of faith
And empower us
Though thy very Spirit
Who breathes life into this world
Whose presence is reflected
In the icy chill
Of winter’s breath
As well as the comforting warmth
Of a summer breeze.
Walk with us into this New Year
Of opportunity and growth.
So Mote It Be!

‘Tis the season to make New Year resolutions–and to break them just as quickly, at least partly because the very language of most resolutions (“I will lose weight! I will stop smoking!”) is punitive and belittling to the soul. But our horoscope sun-sign can point the way to a life-affirming resolution your spirit can really get behind.
These resolutions speak a powerful, positive language that our spiritual selves respond to, in accordance with what is best in us, and working hand in hand with our deeper purpose in life. Find out the affirming resolution for your sun-sign, here:
