The little salt and pepper shakers were on sale for $3.99 so they jumped in my cart too.
I write an article each month for our Villa Ramona Complex. I wanted to share the Thoughts from the Treehouse for the New Year with you too.
Life is not like a "magic slate" or an Etch-a-Sketch, where you can lift the page or shake the box and get a clean page. Unfortunately, we bring into a new year all the troubles, worries and debts of the year past. We can't change the past. We can't change the future, but we can change the present.
This New Year is a GIFT. How we handle it is a choice. This is the one thing that is for sure. we can make choices. Here are a few of the ways I plan to make good choices for the New Year. Maybe you'd like to use some of mine and make some of your own.
G ~ Why not choose to show GRATITUDE in difficult situations. Something as simple as PLEASE or THANK YOU are wonderful gifts.
I ~ Showing genuine INTEREST in your family and friends is a special gift. We all long to have someone to take an interest in what we think and do.
F ~ Have some FUN every day. Smile a lot, laugh hard, and say hello to those you meet in the complex.
T ~ TIME is so valuable and a gift you can give that is priceless. Be sure to take TIME to share with your family and friends and perhaps a lonely person you know.
My husband and I enjoying living at Villa Ramona and are going on our second year. we have met many of you at the events at the Clubhouse and would like to meet more of you.
We love sitting on our balcony above the playground and hearing the laughter of the children. I continue to bake cookies and have a "Cookie Day". Be sure to look for the Red Cookie Banner on the ledge at #35 and enjoy a homemade cookie.
Have a wonderful New Year, and don't forget the GIFT.
Your friendly neighbor, Wanda.
