Happy New Year 2018 - From My Family To Yours

jamaican nuclear family

What a blessing! We made it yet again to the end of another year!

I say, "To God Be The Glory"!

And as we transition into the new year, I want to share my heartfelt gratitude to you, and all my website fans, partners, associates and friends.

Your readership, your partnership, your questions, comments and comment contributions - all added to make 2017, My-Island-Jamaica.com's 10th anniversary, another special year!

I tried staying away from singling out persons, but I have to mention my writers, Kesha, Nemonie and Lajune, and my dedicated partners, Rocky Tours, Eaton's Jamaica, JACars.net, Seagarden's Beach Resort, Catcha Falling Star, Peace Photography, Tapioca Retreat, June, Maura, Google Adsense Support and of course, Dr. Ken Evoy and my SBI family among many others.

But the biggest appreciation goes to YOU and all my readers - without you I have no business.

And by the way, I'm celebrating website traffic (pages read) of over 6.01 million views for the year (2017 so far), yes six million, astonishing!

Again thank you!

And I have even bigger goals for this year - and yes, you will be a part of it :-)

On a personal note, I declare that 2018 will be my best year yet! In health, charity, prosperity, spiritual growth and peace of mind.

And by the way, tomorrow, New Year's Day, I plan to spend the day with my papa, my grandfather in Westmoreland; there is no better way, I believe, to ring in the new year, than with the fellowship and wisdom of this wise old man.

Anyway, although you love me :-), I know reading this right now is probably not your biggest priority, so let me give you back your time...

But before you go, please allow me to wish you the same thing I wish for myself, a fantanstic rest of the holiday season and a new year filled with achievement, abundance, mproved health, peace and contentment, joys and goodwill.

So, from my family to yours, I say to you my friend... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!! Let's rock 2018!

Cheers! My glass of Jamaican sorrel is pointing to you :-)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
by: Pat. M.

Happy New Year..... Wellesley to you and your beautiful family...2017 was... somehow a little rough for me. I lost my beautiful sister right in the middle of Christmas, so the celebration was not a happy one, but God still sit's on the Throne and because of this great and awesome God!!!...we can look back at 2017 and still give Him the Praises for many things....
Where i am right now is very, very cold!!! not like you Wellesley, in my beautiful Island of Jamaica..... I can just imagine how you taking in the sunshine and enjoying the lovely beaches..... but nevertheless, i will be there shortly by the Grace of God.
I wish for you a great 2018..... great health, lots of love and happiness and many more years to come. God Bless!!

New Year's wishes
by: Andrea Richards

Happy New Year,
As I read the latest issue it warms my heart to be in touch with what's going on in Jamaica. I wish I could have spent my year end somewhere warm. It is currently -8 or more outside with lots of snow and more to come.
Wishing you a prosperous 2018.
