New Year

The Happiest of New Years to you and yours. 2009 will be a wonderful year!

Ok, I've borrowed the following from Killer Fiction's blog.

Commitment is what
transforms a promise into reality

It is the words that speak boldly
of your intentions
And the actions which speak
louder than words

It is making the time
when there is none.
Coming through time after time
after time
Year after year after year

Commitment is the stuff
character is made of,
The power to change
the face of things.

It is the daily triumph
of integrity over skepticism.

What a great saying! I hope your New Year commitments truly define your dreams.

Hi Gillian! Hopping over from the Bandit Lair to say hello and get that fab quote you mentioned. I really, really like that. Quotes are such pithy things, aren't they? I love it when a phrase or a few sentences can have such intense meaning. I'm copying that one down...was it attributed? I'll have to go back to the main post and look.

Anyway, Happy New Year! :>

Happy New Year and best wishes for 2009!

Gillian Layne said...

Thanks so much for stopping by, Jeanne! I do love quotes dearly, and I didn't see an attribute to that one. It fits writing beautifully.

Hi Lee! I hope you have a great New Years!

Christie Craig here. Thank you so much posting the poem.

I wish I could tell Jeanne who wrote it, but my neighbor gave it me and said someone had printed it off for her with only annonymous printed below.

It is framed and hangs on office wall. I read it often when I'm feeling in need of little inspiration.

It really says a lot, doesn't it?

Thanks again.

Hey, Miss Gillian, Happy New Year from hot and sticky Oz (and sadly, that's not a comment on my date last night!). Love the quote! Wishing you every success and every happiness in 2009!

Christie, I am pleased as punch that you were able to come by today! It's a fabulous poem, and really fits the whole "stick with it!" necessity of writing. And I really do love y'all's blog! :)

Gillian Layne said...

Anna! (((hugs))) Thanks for coming by, sweetie. Guess what I just opened? A package with your new Bookmark! I do love the Bandita's, yes, I do. :)

Jeanne (AKA The Duchesse) said...

Hey Christie! Thanks for letting me know the Anonymous part. I'll use that. :> Great quote, as I said. And it's going up in my office too!

Gillian, SO glad you liked the prezzie.

Louisa Cornell said...

Fabulous quote, Gillian. Definitely printing it and putting it on the board next to my computer! We just have to keep at it. 2009 will be our year, I'm sure of it!

Wishing you and yours the very happiest, safest, healthiest and most successful of New Years!!

Gillian Layne said...

Happy New Year, Nancy! Thanks so much for coming by. I'm glad you liked the poem. :)

Louisa! Honey, this IS going to be a wonderful year, I can feel it! And all the kindness you've showered on others will come flooding back to you, as well.
