That’s right, three full months of 2013 are behind us, with only nine more months ahead to create something absolutely fabulous out of our efforts this year.

Amazingly enough, all my five of my New Year’s Resolutions remain intact! (And that’s no April Fool’s Joke!)

Close friends know that this has  been the most difficult year of my life thus far, fraught with a myriad of challenges, both personal and public. Suffice to say that my “family of origin” has shrunk considerably in the past few months, while my “family of choice” is alive and well, and truly flourishing.

My wish for all of you is much joy and happiness this coming month and always, and I encourage you to remember to surround yourself with only upbeat, positive people, and feel free to blow the rest away.
