January 2013 is just about done, and I can barely remember New Year's Day.  This has been an exciting month. My fourth grand daughter was born, Obama was inaugurated for his second term, and we commemorated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday-Wow. Now that's the definition of life being a forward process, and if you don't keep moving, you will miss a lot.

 As January slips out and February moves in there is so much to look forward to.  Hold fast to your dreams, wishes, hopes, aspirations and goals. Remember the moment of absolute certainty never arrives, but  fear and doubt should not hinder your progress because:

"Nothing beats a failure but a try."
