Alicia Lopez’s Musings

That old image of a  baby crawling in diapers and an old man with a scyth limping away certainly displays the feelings of all individuals, including mine, concerning the new year we are about to embark on.

To me, a baby is God’s promise that the world will go on.

Perhaps another example of new beginnings would be a book with blank pages, waiting to be written on.  I am ready to write in that book, filling it with hope for all.  Amid all the hoopla from politicians as to what is wrong with this world of ours, should be the antidote of what is right.

We,  in this wonderful country of ours, can count ourselves lucky.  Despite what you hear and read, we still have freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to vote, et. etc. in other words, the Bill of Rights.

That blank page in the book of life?  Fill it with good deeds, because it will eventually be the book you carry to the pearly gates, where you will be judged, not by what you possessed, but what good you accomplished.

Remember how several blogs back I extolled the benefits of Facebook, where you could keep up with family and friends, and acquaintances?  Well,I have problems with what I have recently been reading by some of them, not all are family members, but acquaintances through the years.  There is more concern with immediate satisfaction, be it drinking, partying, playing, mostly by the younger generation, than with accomplishing something with their lives.

I suppose this is a phase to go through for the young ones;  is this when the question “Too much information?” is required?   I do enjoy seeing pictures of my great granddaughter growing up through these pages; seeing friends traveling and experiencing new things;  praying for those who have health issues; and applauding those who have reached their goals in life.

I urge everyone to examine their lifes, fix what is broken, enjoy and love your family and friends, and aim to be a better person; life is too short to spend on grudges, hates, and broken promises.

May the year 2012 bring us peace on earth and goodwill towards all .

Hasta la Vista
