My New Years Wish

So the night I went to pick up Bob at the store,
and head up to my mom's for my uncle's funeral...
as I neared the store, my brake light,
traction light, and some other light came on.
Oh and my windshield washers stopped working.
Major electrical problems.
I was so worried about breaking down that
we ended up taking our cargo van to my mom's.
Thursday afternoon, I ended up purchasing a new vehicle.
Bob sold my car to someone who can fix it.
He did not want me to be stranded in a 10 year old car.
Now I have a spanking new Chevy Equinox.
It is AWD (all wheel drive)
It has snowed each day I have had it now,
and it drives wonderful.
It is a Silver Ice color and even came with a pinstripe.
I feel classy now.

Since our candy store is on hold now, we used the money
that we saved for that as a down payment on the car.
I always say there is a reason for everything,
so maybe we were suppose to have a car before candy. 
Hopefully once the issue with the building is fixed...
we will have enough money to pursue the candy store again.
I will keep you posted.

As the year 2017 comes to an end,
I would like to extend my
New Year's Wish to you all.
More like wishes.

I am blessed to have friends like you.
Friends who make me laugh, giggle and smile.
My wish for you is that you do the same.
Remember to turn that frown upside down and smile.

My wish is that we can all live in peace and harmony. 
Let's end the negativity and difficulties and 
rejoice in our accomplishments and prosperity.

My wish is that we remain hopeful in our future.
Forget the past and revel in many greater tomorrows.

Remembering the simplistic life of my 
forefathers and foremothers...
my wish is that we all take the time to smell the roses.

Thank you for following along on my journey.
You are the best friends!!!
More to come in the new year.

My final wish is that you all have a fantastic
Let the celebration begin!

New Years Wishes Blessings To All!
