Happy New Year, everyone- I didn't send out Christmas cards this year- not sure why- ran out of time, I guess. But I still wanted to wish you all a wonderful New Year. Somewhere I was reading about choosing a word to use as a guide for 2010. Of course there's always- 'healthy' and 'organized' and quite a few idea words that make me think of positive and uplifting things.
So- my word will be 'us'- working on what started this whole journey- the man I love and our friendship, romance. We plan to do more fun things together. Megan and Jaime's trip to the Bahamas really inspired us.
How about you? What would your word be? Do you want to get more fit- more organized? Do you want to slow down? Get busy? Volunteer? Find a dream? Follow a star?
I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. But I do believe in the Yellow Brick Road- in looking towards a goal and putting one foot in front of the other every day- leaning on your friends when you need to, and leading those you love when they need you to- and making your way through this incredible life, knowing that The Emerald City is within your grasp- and that friends and family are what each of us need to get there. I love you all- I wish you a year filled with all the best- if life is handing you too much to bear- reach out and share that with your friends. And if your life is wonderful- reach out to those who need a hand. Happy New Year- Mary
