Reflecting on 2009
It's appropriate that the last photos I took on my recent trip to the USA and West Virginia would be the sunrise. A symbol for new beginnings. As we all look forward to 2010 and better times, I like that my trip ended on this positive note.
This time last year I was in the hospital convinced that I was going to die from whooping cough. Luckily I didn't. This year has really been an adventure. Those of you who read with regularity know the journey. It's been disappointing at times, but fun at others. I've learned a LOT! I'm ending the year with a light heart, a happy smile and great anticipation for what the future will bring - not only for me, but for all of us.
Isn't that the way many of us feel at year's end - optimistic, hopeful and usually filled with anticipation? I know for all of us too, there have been years when we were just grateful that that year was over - with a loud sign and a "Whew!" we have moved on.............
So, with that thought in mind, I say - "Let's get ready for more adventure and another roller coaster ride of fun and laughter".
Thanks for all of your comments over the last year. It has added much to the joy of my life!
