Happy New Year! “There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things that are beyond the power of our will.” Epictetus…

Here we are 2018 and once again I did not make a New Year’s resolution. I really try every day to do my very best, give the day my best shot. When I fail, I immediately try to do better. This life is a work in progress. I am going to lose 10 pounds, that is a promise to me!

What a good time the 2017 holidays were, from good whiskey ,wine, to eggnog, to fruit cake, hogs head cheese, duck pate, good cheese, cheese straws, toasted pecans, candy, especially pralines… it was all so much fun but we are ready for the old Cabbage Soup!

Every morning, when I wake up, the first thing I do is say my prayers. Paul (Mike Cage’s hero) tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. I thank God for all my blessings and ask him to let me serve him my very best that day. I pray for all our children, grandchildren, our friends and family, all our deceased friends and family, reduced global warming, congress, and our elected officials, the dogs, the birds, my garden.

Matthew says that our Father knows what we want and need before we ask him but I ask him anyway just to make sure. I ask God for so much, surely he does not have time for just me, that is why I know he has lots of angels here on earth.

Happy New Year…. and Happy Cheers to 80 years a beautiful birthday celebration for JERRY (PAPA) WOLFF... planned by his beautiful family. SUSAN & JIM SNYDER, grandsons HART & BROWN, JERRY WOLFF JR. TRIPP & GARRISON…. This was a surprise! Dinner for 30 at Genusa’s.

The guests arrived around 6:30 that evening to a beautifully decorated room. We waited and waited.. Susan called her Dad, as he was to meet them just for a family dinner, he thought. He told Susan he could not make it as he had fallen and hurt his hand.

Someone got word to Jerry that he had to come as this was a very big surprise 80th birthday celebration just for him. All I can say Jerry Wolff is much a man. He arrived, all smiles, and enjoyed the evening and fellowship. He told Mike about his fall and that his wrist was really hurting. Next day Orthopedic Clinic... A broken wrist and broken ribs..
