Good-Bye 2010

It is time to pack away the last of year 2010.
Tucking Rosemary Clooney (White Christmas movie) safely 
away into the Christmas chest,
along side the family ornaments.

One Christmas card is staying on the mantel however.
 It makes me smile every time I walk by it!

Speaking of my son and daughter-in-love....
oh you weren't speaking of them?
Well, they are my main attraction right now as they
travel ever closer to California.

They were at the Grand Canyon yesterday......

Writer Son's caption under this photo of his new bride:

"The Grand Canyon just got 10 times more beautiful!"

 I know! Sweetness to usher us into a brand new year!

Two-thousand-ten was not a great year for me personally.
Seeing my two sons in good relationships 
are the bright spots in an otherwise tough last 8 months.

And that is worth a lot isn't it?
I look at my men
and I smile 
with thankfulness.

Now as I enter two-thousand-eleven
it is time for me to look ahead
remind myself of what is behind me.
No, not the year that is behind me....
but the WINGS that are behind me.

Walking Butterfly is about using those big gorgeous wings
to fly
rather than dragging them
like a walking butterfly.

It is time to fly.
I am sick of

Ready, set, go........


  1. You have a creative ability to say Goodbye to 2010! I love it!

  2. What a nice post - poignant yet hopeful. I have a feeling that 2011 will be a much nicer and better year for you. The photograph of the Grand Canyon is superb...a place I would love to visit.
    I particularly like your mention of the butterfly...flap those wings and take off.
    I came by not only to say hello but to thank you for following my blog. I really enjoy blogging and sharing my world but it is made so much more pleasurable by sharing my thoughts and experiences with super people such as yourself. When I first started this I had no idea that I would meet such wonderful people who I feel have become Blogworld 'friends'. So thank you for all your visits and your kind comments, all of which have served to encourage me further.
    I'll take this opportunity to say thank you once again and to wish you the happiest of new years. May 2011 be a fabulous year for you.
    My sincerest wishes.

  3. Sadie was here for Bear. He's gone into hibernation. I'm looking after things while he's gone.

    Hope all of you have a wonderful 2011.

    love this :)
