I was all sad and feeling pathetic about being home alone on New Year’s Eve, and my birthday. My sister though (that’d be #3) stopped by with a little birthday present and a couple hours worth of company. Put me in a much better frame of mind.
2009 will be done and gone in just a little bit here. I’m facing down a new year in more than one way. It’s officially a new decade. I’ve officially been around for a quarter of a century. It’s a sobering moment, standing on the edge of a new year, in more ways than one.
2009 was a rough year. Financially, emotionally, mentally….we hit a lot of obstacles.
And while we made it through some of those obstacles, some still need to be overcome. And it’s the same for many of our family and friends.
But along with a new year, comes hope. Hope, it costs nothing, yet gives so much….and I wanted to share some of my hopes for the new year. Not just for my family, but for all of us.
It’s my hope that those who are physically unwell, can find peace and healing.
I hope that 2010 proves to be a more prosperous year for those who have faced financial problems in 2009.
I hope that we parents find more time in 2010 to savor our children, those beautiful uniquely odd little people who, for some strange reason, were trusted to us, the less than perfect.
I hope 2010 brings continued healing and growth in those relationships that struggled in 2009. And for those who saw the end of one, I hope that 2010 proves to you how strong and wonderful and worthy of real love and respect you are.
I hope that 2010 brings peace to those who lost someone dear in 2009. I hope that those memories bring you joy, minus the bitter pain.
And as we put 2009 behind us and prepare for whatever 2010 will throw our way, I hope that we find the strength we need daily, to crawl out of bed and face it down.
What are your hopes for the new year?
