Happy New Year to everyone:
My family started the year with a bang, we were all together, (at my house) all the kids, grandkids and us. We ate a little, had some social spirits and we all were awake to toast the new year.
We shouted out 2008 is gonna be great!!! As we laughed an reminiced about new years of past, growing up and all the funny little things that happen in all families, I noticed the love in the room, there was not a down spirit in the room, as the phone rang with relatives from afar calling to wish us a happy new year, we were all just having a great time, its been a long time since I have felt so at peace with all my family hanging out.
Since we were being social, we all had decided that no one would leave, so as the night moved to wee morning hours, the sleeping bags and pillows came out, and we all slept until morning. It was wonderful.
I am so grateful for my family, and all that I have, my children are healthy and full of life and we (the parents) are growing older, however we still have so much more life in us, I am grateful for waking up each day, with a smile on my face, grateful for my peace of mind, and the knowledge of knowing that my attitude is my decison, I am grateful for this program as I have learned and come to realize so much, although I have not and will not make any resolutions, I know this is going to be a great year, simply because I have made a decision and I expect it to be great. I could go on and on about things I am grateful for, but the one last thing I want to mention is that I am grateful for love. I have love in my heart and in my soul and OH WHAT A FEELING it is to be loved.
I love you all, and most of all I love me.
