During December 2010, the quote above (source unknown) became very real to me…
Elna has already mentioned that Somerset Publications published five of my greeting cards in the Winter 2011 issue of their “Take Ten” magazine - exactly a year after I had submitted them for one of their challenges. What a way to end the year!!
I also found out just before Christmas that I needed to go in for a lung-biopsy after an MRI scan revealed possible cancer lesions on my lungs. The biopsy took place on December 28th and I had to wait for ONLY two days to get the results – the longest 48 hours in my life!? I am glad to report that the results came back negative!!
Even though I am still recuperating after the surgery, December 2010 has taught me that good things come to those who wait – be it for a year or for two days…
Wishing you a blessed year filled with memorable months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds...
Make the most of 2011!!
