Happy New Year – Daryle Lambert's Antique and Collectibles Blog – Time to reflect.


There is a saying “It was the best of times and the worst of times.” That is the way I feel about 2009 because I think about all that I didn't get accomplished but then I have to be honest and thank God for all he did for me last year.

I would like to share a little story with you. A friend of mine asked me if I remembered a child that was killed in a particularly brutal incident several months ago. When she described the incident, I did recall it. Well, she said “I got a Christmas card from an old friend and in it the person said that they had lost a grandchild this year. Yes, it was the child that I had remembered” she said “but until I found out it was my friend's grandchild, it really didn't mean too much to me.”

Some of the time that is the way I feel. With all the problems that I read about, they just don't seem to touch me. This year, however, was different in that on several occasions members would ask if we as a club would pray together for situations that were real to them, and guess what, they became real to us. Yes, I am thankful to live in this great country, have a wife and child that are my life and a God that loves me unconditionally.

So my wish for all of you is that over this weekend, you just bask in the goodness that we received each day last year, keep your loved ones ever so near, give thanks for your blessings and don't think about what the new year will have in store for us. We can start crossing those bridges next week and guess what, we will do it together.Happy New Year to All.

  1. Mr. Lambert,

    A good 2010 to you. I was researching Leon Dabo and came across your comment that you talked to someone who has 100 of Dabo's paintings, butthe excerpt doesn't give the part about who this is. Is it possible to give me the rest of that paragraph?

  2. It was the brother of the artist I believe. He lived in Chicago.
