can't believe that all that planning and anticipation for a wonderful day has now come and gone.

it came and went by so fast. at least that is how it felt to me. the new year is just around the corner.

I am excited for the new year to come, but at the same time what will it bring?

will it bring happiness/joy, resolutions to some peoples problems? will it bring pain to others?

NO, I am not being a Debbie Downer, I am just being realistic. a few days before the new year comes, I always start wondering what it will bring me - me and my family.

there is still one more week of 2009 left to live.
and we will live it day by day. and I will live it wanting 2010 to be a great year for all of us.

2009 has been a crazy year for me. it's brought many blessings as well as ups and downs, but that is part of life right? ups and downs, good and bad.

so this next week, I will start preparing for the New Year.... trying to have my mind set towards the positive that it will bring. waiting for it with open arms no matter what it brings. because another year lived is a blessing.

Hi~ I hope you and your family had a nice Christmas. Ours was definitely different without my sister and her family. I, too get really melancholy at this time- looking to the next year and the holidays being over and all the anticipation and expectations and preparations involved in making everything go smoothly. Keep thinking about things like you have been and the answers and resolutions will come...Peace to you Angie...

A blessing for all. I love that. That big, sweeping, heart felt statement. I just love it.

Girl, you just said a mouthful and I agree 100%! Every day is blessing and tomorrow holds no guarantees. God gives us this day, here and now, so let's make a pact not to waste one minute of today, OK?
