Bring it on.

As  the year 2018 dwindles from hours to minutes and 2019 arrives with many uncertainties, I wish you all a blessed New Year, prosperity, and good health. God bless each of you, those of faith who believe and those who don't. To look into a newborn baby's face is to witness God's handiwork. 

This quote spoke to me. Looking back over 2018, I would agree...

"There are years that ask questions and years that answer."

I was in the doctor's office last week and came across this quote by Zora Neale Hurston from
one of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God . 

This book brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature. It is 99 cents on Kindle. I have not read it yet, but hope to soon.

I am thankful for my followers and friends near and far. Happy New year 2019! May this be a year that provides opportunity and answers for you.

Linda--I read this book with a book club. One of the women listened to an audio version as she read it. For her, it helped.

I love the quote. I hope this is a year of answers (for me) and I hope it's a happy and healthy one for you and your family.

Happy New Year to you and your family. I'm sure my son Genius will be lifting a glass of wine in toast. Many times. So one of the toasts might as well be earmarked for you!

Happy New Year, Linda! Wishing you all good things.
