Last Day of 2012- A Day to Reflect




 
I found this Red Velvet cocoa mix at World Market during the holidays.  I have been thinking about it - wondering if it would be a gorgeous red hot cocoa! This morning- the last day of the year- I finally got time to try it- and no- it -is- not- red.  But very delicious anyway! I just feel lucky that I have time this morning to savor it's aroma because in a few minutes I have to go to work.  With bittersweet feelings,  I am on my way in to the store.  As most of you know, we are closing the store in about 6 weeks. It's time to change gears and do something with a little more freedom. But more to come on that exciting subject later.  Today I just am thankful that I live in a country where I can make the choices about my life.  With that thought in mind, this video really puts things in perspective.
 
 
it's called "Lightning in a Jar"
 
Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year! Don't be saddened by the closing of your store. Sometimes closing a door brings such beautiful opportunities. It initially hurts but having that experience (of having the store) will serve you well in your next adventure. There is never failure. It's always a lesson to which I like to say... a skill that we learned to be better at something else.

When when one door closes another opens. Opportunity, a possibility due to favorable combination of circumstances.
This is how I few the closing of the store.
It has been a honor and pleasure working for such a wonderful and talented woman all these years.
The best to you and your family in the new year.
Take that lighting jar and run with it.
Love ya,Laurell
