Recipe for a Happy New Year

Take twelve whole months.
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
hate, and jealousy.

Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.
Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty, or
thirty-one different parts,
but don’t make up the whole batch at once.

Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients:
Mix well into each day one part of faith,
one part of patience, one part of courage,
and one part of work.

Add to each day one part of hope,
faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.

Blend with one part prayer, one part meditation,
and one good deed.

Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
and a cupful of good humor.

Pour all of this into a vessel of love.
Cook thoroughly over radiant joy,
garnish with a smile,
and serve with quietness, unselfishness,
and cheerfulness.

A note from me:

May the New Year Bring Us
Happiness,Good Health,Prosperity
Peace Throughout the Land.

God Bless Us and Keep Us
in the Palm of His Hand.

Thank you to all the TCL Blog, Facebook and Twitter followers for your kindness and friendship this past year.  
I'd also like to thank all the bloggers out there for your hard work. It's been an interesting year. It may not have turned out the way we had hoped for, but we can't give up.  Let's start the new year with determination and hope that we can somehow make a difference, even if it's bringing to light something that was missed by just one individual or somehow influencing our leaders in DC to do the right thing once in a while.  
After all, if we sit back and give up, they win.

We know our country is in peril due to the destructive agenda of the White House and the cowardice of many in the GOP, but let us remember Who is really in charge of our lives.   Continue praying to Him for guidance and strength to deal with whatever comes our way this year and into the future.

Happy New Year 2013!


  1. Happy New Year to us all here on The Conservative Lady s blog. But continue to keep your eyes on the prize, It́s going to be a very bumpy ride in 2013.
    I cańt begin to express the rage that I feel over this "Deal" they struck last night.
    Because once again we were stabbed in the back by the Good Old Boy’s in the Senate with the help of that Grinning Chimp Joe Biden .
    These morons who voted for this dynamic duo go to the voting booth with an intellectual deficiency! They probably spend more time watching Football yesterday than worrying about the Tax situation ..Because THEY ARE REALLY JUST PLAIN and SIMPLY STUPID! How many of these morons who voted for Uncle Joe know that their payroll tax will go up two percent in this so called deal? I’d bet NONE, all they care about it that the “Rich” guy is gonna pay more taxes!!
    Well, a pox on them and their spawn, and that includes, Obama, the Grinning Imbecile Biden, everyone that voted for these creeps and the House Speaker John Boehner as well. If "Mr. Speaker" wants to get reelected, he better turn his back on this travesty of a “deal”. And how about that stupid speech Obama made in front of that P:ANTED crowd of Homeless idiots yesterday! If he wants to crow victory if everything goes his way, or blame Biden/McConnell if it goes the wrong way. After all he don’t have Bush to kick around anymore. What a farce him coming back to Washington after spending a week in Hawaii! He probably just misses the free booze in the White House cabinet. And what happened to Obama’s BIG spending? Where are the cuts?
    This entire so called process is a travesty. There was never a fiscal crisis. Never a so called “fiscal cliff” this was all a dram show. The entire Congress is made up mostly of self-serving spineless wimps, worried only about their re-election, and us stupid idiots keep putting the back time and time again,.. The entire lot of them should be replaced, but that’s never going to happen because the American voters really don’t care ot don’t listen. All they want is Free Goodies. .
    I am keeping close track on those Republicans who voted for this deal. I hope they enjoyed their time in office because our Tea Party movement will do everything possible to replace their heartless un-American ass’s. This isn’t sealed in concrete yet maybe their hope , please, please House Republicans: do NOT vote for this crappy deal. It is time to be responsible to your constitutes, because if you give in now, it will only get worse later.
    And Pshaw! These are the socialist and commies that got us into this mess by spending more than we took in, and by raiding social security and Medicare all for boosting their own political prestige and personal gain. Now we are supposed to fall in line and in lock-step to their late-night closed door agreement? I say no! Don’t do it House conservatives -- NO tax increases on anybody! Any putz can go in there at the 11th hour and raise taxes, where is your true courage? Any Joe American who loves his country can go in there and raise Capital Gains, and inheritance tax or estate tax’s! Where are the spending cuts? Why not cut Congressional and Executive perks by at least 50 percent? Why not make these politicians do what the rest of us have ot do?

  2. Happy New Year, Conservative Lady!

    I do expect 2013 to be a tough year for us conservatives. But we'll just have to make the best of the situation.
