Happy New Year and Good Luck Wishes!

Happy New Year!  I am sending each and every one of you my sincere wish for only excellent health, happiness, success, love, and all the best that life has to offer for this upcoming year.

Today, I am making the traditional good luck foods of pork and sauerkraut.  This year, I am adding some black-eyed peas since it is also rumored to help usher in good luck. 

Though food will hardly change your fate, I think good luck traditions are important this one day of the year.  Regardless of how our current lives are going, they allow us to keep that candle of hope burning through that childlike bit of magic within us instead of letting the problems of our current life extinguish it. 

Therefore, I will serve those particular foods and with every bite, I will also be expecting a happier and more prosperous year than the last.  So for this one day, I will be a child again and believe in magic and the power of my good luck pork, sauerkraut, and black-eyed peas to unleash only the best the universe has to offer. 

If you hate pork, sauerkraut or black-eyed peas or think I am silly for doing so, I understand and do not take offense.  In that case, I will share some of my good luck with YOU while I eat mine.  After all, it is the least I can do to thank you for reading and letting me into your lives.

So keep smiling and do remember that you always have a friend here at Nuts 4 Stuff!  I mean what I say and those words come from my heart because we all are searching for the same things from life.

I couldn't agree more about that fantastic health and prosperity wish for ALL of US!

I will need to put fish and sparkling wine and add those to our menu as well!

Take care and thanks for writing.
