Another year comes to an end.

See the fruits of your blood, tears, and perspiration. 

Those little eyes will give you inspiration.

  1. This is terrific! I am so looking forward to starting a new year.

    1. Thanks! That means a lot coming from you. To tell you the truth, it started out very dark. Then it worked it's way out to the bright side. I know of too many little ones that have lost their battle to cancer in the last few weeks. I took their inspiration and strength to find the positive.

    2. I think this has been a rough year for loss for everyone. I am hoping that 2013 brings joy for everyone. (this comment from you went to spam, so I just got it. Sorry)

  2. It is such a blessing to be able to look backward with gratitude and forward with anticipation.

  3. Liked this a lot!
    Captured the feeling of the year change wonderfully.

  4. This is definitely a good start to the next year!
