I promised myself this year that all aspects of life would be addressed. I know I have many large resolutions and I am staying on track with them. At the same time I have many 2012 vows to myself to make changes to live a better life; be a better family member and friend. Living La Dolce' Vita translates to living the sweet soulful life. I just learned the hard way how delicate the blessing of life is. One mistake, like a late birthday card can end up being a lifetime of regret. Take the time now to send the cards, to call a loved one because time is of the essence, it is fleeting and one should never regret anything in life. We constantly get second and third chances if we are lucky, and I intend to take those chances and not make such lazy mistakes in the future. I pray my wonderful Father in law recovers and lives a long life. He is a perfect role model for the whole family and we are blessed to have him.I am making my month list of birthdays so I can send cards out at the beginning of each month. In this world of technology and Facebook we sometimes forget the ones who we love the most do not take part in the modern way of keeping in touch. To make the extra effort is easy and they deserve that and so much more from us. I am grateful for my beautiful families on each side, but my gratitude doesn't mean anything if I do not take the time to let them know how important they are. I hope I never get the chance to live with such regrets and will continue to strive to "LIVE LA DOLCE' VITA" and to be forever grateful for this elusive gift called life.
