Well, not really. Tonight there is no big party, no elaborate plan to ring in the New Year. Tonight it will be me & my boys at home and for that I am most happy. With all the running around that was done during Christmas I purposed a quiet New Year, everyone agreed.
2008. It was quite a year. There were many ups and down; jobs gained & jobs lost; rocky marriage mended; old friendships renewed with new life; toxic friendships ended; new traditions made; important people gone, new people to love on; sadness & happiness. It was quite a year.
I am looking forward to 2009. There has been a tremendous amount of growth in my life the last six months or so, I’m excited for it to continue and see where it takes us. I am excited to see the magic our new President brings to the people. I am excited to watch our families children grow and develop. I’m excited.
So tonight, while I’m snuggled into my sweetheart at the stroke of midnight (if I stay awake long enough) I will kiss my husband and relish in all the good that came with 2008, let go of the bad and dream about what the new year will bring us.
On that note, I’d like to take this time to wish all of you a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year!
