January 1st 2016...

An attitude of positive expectation is the mark of the superior personality...

My sister Narima is just the most creative person I know.  She does not know the definition
 of failure nor the definition of NO.  He whole attitude in life is one of positivity.

Having kids she is always making up new things for them and for her and George, her 
husband.   For New Year's celebration she concocted one fabulous drink/dessert. 
 Calls it her Champagne Jello Shots with grapes.  Just look at it!

Just wish we would have been there with all of them to bring in the New Year. 
 Would have loved to spend it with my family.  I sure miss them all right now.

Arvid and I had a quiet dinner out and an evening stoll at the beach with a few drinks 
to bring in 2016.  We did not stay to watch the ball drop because we have seen 
it before and it was not that big of a deal this year for us.  

I hope in 2016 to be more patient with myself, and to find the peace I am so missing since
Brutus died.  I want to love Shadow and give him the love I gave to Brutus.  I will do my best
to come to terms that Brutus is now gone forever.  We still have much to be grateful for.

I accept (grudgingly) that Brutus is gone.  Arvid, Shadow and I are here.  We will be
 a family again and forever my Brutus will live in my heart and in my memories.

To all my friends and family, may 2016 bring you joy, happiness, health, and peace.
  Brutus, each night I put my head to my pillow I try to tell myself I'm strong
 because I've gone one more night without you.  Happy New Year in Kitty Heaven
 Brutus.  Mama sure misses you and will be loving you forever and ever.

New Year better attitude is what I'm aiming for.  Moving on is what I have to do.
Shadow is here with us.  Shadow follows us around.  Shadow needs us and we him.

Woke up to a beautiful morning and if this is the start of 2016 then bring it on for it sure
has promises of being a good year.  For all us may 2016 be the year to remember.

And now we welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been...
