Wishing you a happy new year. Michele sent me.
Hi Naomi - yep, that sentence of Anne Frank's definitely sums up how we should think.
Happy New Year, my darling Blogbuddy.
Don't forget to tell us all about your party!
Thank you so much for your greetings on my blog! Always a pleasure your visit, OldOldLady Of The Hills!
Love your words today! Very beautiful and inspired.
Wishing you and your family a Very New Year filled with Love, Joy, Health, Peace and Success. Warmly greetings from your friend Sonia.
And I say Amen, also. You have to believe that! Happy New Year, may you be blessed beyond measure in 2006!
Making a list to thank everyone who commented on my blog in 2005 - you did - thank you! List to post later today. Best wishes for 2006!
Happy New Year to you. Hope it's a great party & 2006 is the happiest, most sucessful year ever.
I agree with Anne Frank, people are basically good at heart, but sometimes they forget:-( I have met some fantastic strangers in my travels, and now I get to do it all over again in the comfort of my own home. Whenever I feel the need to re-affirm my belief in the human race, I can always find someone on the blogosphere with a beautiful story to tell.
Anyway, it's me that should thank you, honey.
You've been so nice, visiting regularly, chatting and allsorts - even when I was having bad days - Thank you :-)
Happy New Year to you and Sweetie.
Beautiful entry today. Thank YOU for being such a positive and consistent presence around these parts. Wouldn't be the same without you. Happy New Year!!
Excellent post for the last day of the year Naomi. The Diary of Anne Frank has always been a favorite of mine. Wonderful words of wisdom from one so young. That's what the world needs now.
God Bless you dear sweet Naomi. You have brought us so much happiness, memories, and lovely pictures through your blog! I know I speak for everyone when I say that we are sooooo glad you started to blog!!
I wish all God's blessing for you in the New Year! Give Sweetie a kiss for me! Here's a toast for the new year!
for anne frank to have felt that way is a true testiment to how great a person she was. if we all thought the way she did the world would be a far better place.
happy new year to you. enjoy 2006!
Amen as well. Amazing that she could still say such a thing, but I do believe it is true.
Happy New Year to you as well!
here from Micheles today
Amen, indeed.... and you my dear are one of the "goodest". ;)
Happy New Year, and have a wonderful 2006!

Happy New Year to you, too!

Anne Frank summed it up well in that one sentence, didn't she?
Naomi, you are one that has a good heart and I thank you for sharing it with me and all of us out here in blogland! You are a sweetheart! My warmest wishes for you in 2006!
Beautiful quote, Old Lady of the Hills. Just beautiful. I agree with it, 100%. There is goodness in the world; such incredible goodness. You are a ray of light in our lives, and I, especially, thank you for your good heart. You are so open minded, and so obviously love life.
Thank you for you!
BTW--My name is Marcy_Peanut. My blog name is A Little Bent. If you know what I mean. ;)
You're such a sweetie! I hope you have a great New Year!
Beautiful post, Naomi, and beautiful words from Anne. I agree with all of it....Happy New Year, my friend.
Happy 2006 Naomi...

its good for anne that she did not have to read today's headlines, she might have amended her diary

Happy New Year -- May dreams come true
Happy New Year!!!!!!
Happy New Year my bloggity friend.
Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing your stories with us :)
Happy and blessed New Year Naomi. Anne Franks Diary was a book I read over and over in my younger years.
It has been a pleasure "meeting" you this year.
happy new year to my new friend. i am so glad that we know you.
all the best in the new year,
Misti, Chris, Dakota and Indiana, over at the State of Indiana
That quote of Anne Frank's from a girl wise beyond her young years spun me back in time to when I first read her book, at only a few years younger than her age when she wrote in "Kitty."
Her fervent optimism during her and her family's caged times struck me as poignantly then as it does today. Her words are timeless as you show. It's apt that you quoted her on the last night of Chanukkah, a holiday of religious freedom for hers (and my) faith.
I'm delighted to have found you on my own in this blogosphere. Your blog is a treat: a mix of history (personal and past) with humanity, kindness, and enthusiasm abounding.
Kindest New Year 2006 wishes to you!
I believe there is good in most everyone. If Anne Frank could say what she did in the most dire of situations, I'm sure she'd still say the same today. I mean, what could be worse than what she went through? She ended up paying the ultimate price.
HAPPY NEW YEARS NAOMI!
(I only want to clarify that my darling husband openly admits he can't count as a family joke...We were out one night of Channuka and didnt' light our Menorah and he put the candles in this yr, rather than our daughters... All that is to explain that Jan.1 was truly the last night, not Dec. 31 even though we had all of our candles lit here!
I gave him a good razzing about that, telling him, it was a good thing I didn't land on too many blogs with that erroneous info.
All that aside, I told him of your choice of Anne Frank's quote. Thumbs up from him, too.
I love that quote. I love it as much now as I did when I first studied the book in high school. It resonates very deeply in my soul.
Thanks for writing about it.
Exciting blog. The site out did itself and will be
back! I love surfing the internet for blogs that are
exactly like this blog.
Hey son, you need to check out my house cleaning blog!
She was, and is, my definition of a hero. If only her murderers had taken the time to learn Ms. Frank's lessons of life.
