  1. Happy New Year. I do hope it is one that is filled with above all else, good health and then joy and peace and much success. Thanks for all your hard work, it is appreciated and so helpful 🙂

  2. Oh darling my 2019 has been the same sort of culling. I came to this week realizing I simply feel “unmoored” and lost and adrift.
    I’m trying to find joy again, purpose other than doing everything for everyone else. I’m trying to find a new perspective and go into 2020 with the word changed from “unmoored “ to “untethered”.
    It’s a slow process.

  3. Happy,Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones Alison. As ever your words are beautiful and heartfelt. May the peace and contentment you seem to have found stay with you.xx

  4. Just had to comment, such a lovely honest piece of writing as always. My daughter said to me this morning, isn’t it wonderful that when you get older you appreciate the simple things and the quiet of an evening spent alone puttering. I smiled because she is quite right, and she bless her has learned this lesson far earlier than many of us did, she is 28 years old and wiser than many I know. I too in the past year or so have learned to be still and appreciate the quiet of my soul, and I am glad of it. It seems to me Alison you have now also found it and I am glad for you too, For simplicity, peace and quiet and appreciating the little things are where the blessings abound.

  5. Happy New Year to you and yours as well Alison! ?♥️?I am so FULL of love and gratitude for you and for what you add to our lives!
    Beauty and Blessings,

  6. Your “Blissroom” sounds heavenly! Our library is where my husband and I spend quiet evenings together. No television, just a rather nice stereo system we gifted one another 4 or 5 Christmases ago. This year we replaced our mismatched, aging and broken down chairs with leather recliners. Our beloved dog, Shiloh, commandeered the sofa as his bed several years ago so he sleeps peacefully in the room with us. It’s so important to have a quiet place in one’s home. I hope you have a wonderful 2020 – you deserve it!
