Warm wishes for my blogger friends and everyone for the New Year 2014


“When life gives you a thousand

reasons to cry…..

Show that you have a million

reasons to smile.”

(Author unknown)

“Yesterday is gone,

and its tale told.

Today new seeds,

are growing.”


May you always be received with kindness and grace,

May you always have hope, and hope for better days.

About Samina Iqbal

I am a free lance writer who loves to write on social issues in particular. I am a house wife and my husband Dr. Shams Iqbal offers all the support and encouragement so that I can pursue my passion for authorship and other cause which is dear to me. My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.

    • Thanks so much my dear friend Sharmishtha. I wish you a very happy and joyous and healthy New Year. My prayers for your success and prosperity in the New Year. Take care and God bless.

      • Where are you? Missing you!

      • I was busy with some families who came visiting and were stranded since where they came from there was deep freeze and all flights had been cancelled. So they extended their vacation and I got busy. I am back now. Thanks for missing me and I have a lot of catching up to do. So glad to be back. Take care and God bless.

      • you are being missed very much! waiting for your next post! hope those in trouble are out of trouble now! is it extremely cold in Canada too? USA is freezing, Niagara falls have frozen and it looks so beautiful (dont be mad!)- so very gorgeous! so canada too must be feeling the brunt of cold. We on the other hand did not had the luck of meeting winter queen, winter is over, it will start getting hot within a week or may be two :(

        nature really is finicky this year! acting bizarre.

      • I have just posted the new post, it was ready but for a little bit of editing and I got so busy i could not do it. Yes Canada’s east side is in the grip of Cold freeze. Canada and the US are countries side by side of eau other so Canada has the same climate as USA intact certain areas of Canada are colder than any region in the US. Here where I live it is cold but mildly cold. we are lucky here on the West coast. Glad to be back now. I was missing you too very much my friend. Take care and God bless my lovely friend.

    Loved your poetic messages, especially that we need to smile more than cry! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year, too! I just posted about the Tournament of Roses Parade and wished to share with you and your readers that they had a float ‘right up your blogging alley!’ It was called K9s 4 Cops, or Canines for Cops. The announcer emphasized the German Shepherd dog that was on the float made of flowers and kidney beans, represented service dogs. There were also real policemen walking their service dogs throughout the long parade alongside the float. I used your http:saminaiqbal.wordpress.com to emphasize and acknowledge your generous posts that support the police and others! Take care, Robin

    • Thanks so much for your lovely kind words Robin. I have visited your blog and loved your beautiful post. The details are so informative and fun to read. Thank you so much for remembering me and highlighting my blog in your post. I appreciate it very much my friend, its very kind of you. Take care and God bless.

    Have a happy, blessed New Year!

    :-( It is not working for me. I am getting an error. But I wish you a Happy New Year! I love the wish, and for me I would like to add: “May you always RECEIVE with kindness and grace,” I want to remember that one too! Not only to BE received, but to receive. :-)

    I hope your Holidays were fantastic! Cheers!

    • Thanks so much for the kind words and I do appreciate your addition that we may receive with kindness and grace. What a wonderful wish that reminds us we have obligations towards others and we must fulfill them for our own self-good. My holidays have been fantastic, busy and full of fun. I totally forgot about the calorie intake and enjoyed everything with no remorse. Today I put on my skirt and the blouse that was so loose on me and I felt I was suffocating in the whole clothing. I will not go on crash diet but the process of exercise and healthy intake of food has begun. I am sure you must have had joyful and happy holidays. Take care and God bless.

      • terrepruitt says:

        Right. Even if it is not so much of an “obligation” towards others, it is just the way I would like to be, but sometimes I do not receive others with grace and kindness, not because I am TRYING to be mean — I am just distracted sometimes. I am not always focused on receiving because I am busy . . . . So paying attention and receiving with grace and kindness does help our own self-good (as you pointed out) and also is the way I want to receive people, not be distracted. :-)

        I think it is good that you will not participate in a “crash diet”, but just going back to your normal way of eating will probably help and maybe for a bit more exercise?

        I did have a nice Holiday, thank you!
