Happy New Year Everyone - It's 2010!


I wanted to take a minute to thank all of my friends, readers and fellow book lovers for being here for me in 2009.  Personally, it wasn't the best of years with the loss of my brother to cancer in November.  Your friendship and support, however, got me through many difficult days, and for that I thank you.  My wish 2010 is that we may all enjoy peace, happiness and the best of health in the coming year.

THANK YOU FRIENDS
 A friend is someone we turn to
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure
For  friendship is a gift,
A friend is someone who fills our lives
With Beauty, Joy, and Grace
And makes the world we live in
A Better and Happier Place.
