Wishing You A Blessed New Year

To all my dear friends and family, my wish for you: 2016 = big dreams and even bigger faith that they can come true; hope that takes you high as the roof tops; love that makes you want to scream it from those roof tops; the warmest feeling in the pit of your stomach that stems from being your true self; the even warmer feeling you get from helping those in more of need; may you know just a taste of sorrow to experience how truly sweet the good days are; the bravery you’ll need to tackle loss, grief and pain that someday visits us all; may where you lay your head be a home and may you share it all with true friends that love you just the way you are. 19 more words
