Happy New Year!

Knowing I am well into middle age, I want to enjoy the moments I have. Today, as 2012 comes to a close, I enjoyed the winter wonderland around us with one of my sisters. As I thought about moments, and the blessings they are, I decided to look up some inspirational quotes on moments. Here they are, enjoy!
