As I look back at 2008, I know there are some things I wish I had done better, some things I wish I hadn't done at all, and some things I wouldn't change for the world. I have rekindled some old friendships and made new ones, and I hope to do more of the same in 2009. I have watched those I love struggle with issues in their lives, and I have cried for and with them. I have celebrated new lives coming into the world. I am thankful that in my family, we didn't face death, but I ache for friends who have. I pray that 2009 brings comfort to them.
John, the pups, and I are headed to Smith Lake in the Free State of Winston this afternoon. Since we don't have internet access, I won't be posting or reading anything until we get home Sunday. I know I'll have a lot to catch up on!
Again, let me wish you and yours a wonderful, happy, fun New Year's Eve!
