I have been thinking...

This Christmas I did not get material presents
(Hmmm... do the sweaters that my mom made for me count as presents??)
But I got the best two presents I could had asked for...
Being healthy again and
Your friendship!

My good health, my bloggiefriends and my family is all I need to start a new year full of enthusiasm!

For now, I am taking a nap before the fireworks begin!

Have a nice and safe New Year's celebration!

Stella said...

No fireworks for us, just many, many inches of new snow yesterday and last night!

We are so happy you came through your surgery and your biopsy in good shape! You are everybody's sweetheart and we wish you and your family a Healthy, Happy 2011.


Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Lorenza -

We are guessing you and your family are not too upset to see 2010 end. First you are not feeling well and then your grandma's oven exploded.

But we are glad that no one was hurt and that your biopsy results came back and the mass was benign.

We also wish you all a Happy New Year - Mama is already starting the new year with a head cold which makes her really sleepy.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Martha said...

I am so happy to know that you are well! I like your new sweater, but I personally don't like to wear clothes. Gramma keeps trying to put shirts on me. I take them off. I hope that the New Yera brings all of us dogs happiness with our people and good health!

Sketching with Dogs said...

You got the best presents of all - plus all the cute sweaters of course!
It has been another wonderful year, all the better for knowing you.
Hope the fireworks weren't too bad, we didn't have many this year, thank dog. A very Happy New Year to you all.
