Are we really just two short days away from rolling into next year? I can hardly believe it. This time last year so much was changing for the bad and for the good. Our friend, Cheryl had just passed away. The Red Door was about to open and we were all so lively and excited as we dreamt of what it would be and could be. I didn't expect it to end as soon as it has. I started my job with State Farm. My job has really been the ONLY consistency in 2008. I have learned a lot and it has been very much a blessing in every aspect. Wow, it doesn't seem like it's been a year at all. I can't believe how fast it has flown.

Here's to 2009...

I have no idea what to expect. Everytime I write a New Years Resolution, it is abolutely and completely interrupted in some way or another.

The only thing that I'm saying right now is that I really want to focus on being a better person this year, sacrificing my needs and wants for others, lending a hand when needed, offering an ear to someone who needs to talk and simply loving and accepting each and every person who walks into my life this year as well as the ones who are already in my life.

There is SO much I wish to change about myself and so much I want to do. However, I'm not focusing on the big picture right now as it could become entirely overwhelming. Little by little. Step by step.

I hope that this time next year I can say with confidence that I accomplished much this year by truly becoming less self centered and more aware of the needs of others. I also pray that I truly surrender my heart and soul to God again. I've come so far and realize that I am in need of a turn around.

2009...I'm ready for you :)

Dearie, I do not see an ounce of self centeredness in you! But nothing is wrong with striving to be more Christ-like. I'll be joining you in this journey. Let's pray for one another, shall we?

Happy New Year! Can't wait to see what '09 brings your way :)
