2009 is drawing to a close. And what a year it’s been.
The terrorists have succeeded even further in changing the way we all live. The “hopey changey” guy running the US has done nothing positive at all and has alienated allies, shown weakness to the bad guys and has split the country more than any of his predecessors. Terrorist attacks are on the rise. The economy is still in shambles. Political correctness is digging the hole even deeper. Checkbook journalism and partisan coverage is tainting the news we see and read. And the future looks anything but rosy for so many right now.
On the bright side, maybe this is an adjustment we all need.
But opinions are like penises .. everybody has one (don’t they? teehee!) and my opinion on world affairs is definitely not the reason you come to my site.
The New Year resolution I made at the beginning of this year was a horrible failure. I’m no closer to walking gracefully in ballet heels than I was in January so I’ll make a different type of resolution this time around.
I resolve to smile more! Simple, huh? I hope it is. People in my life come and go, and as hard as that can be at times, I resolve to cherish the moments as they happen instead of mostly cherishing the memories. Yes, cherish the moments as they happen!
Joni Mitchell once sang “you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” .. there’s much wisdom in that single line. And Seleena K once said “if we were supposed to cherish things that are behind us, we’d all be able to smile with our butts”. Not nearly as wise as Joni’s line but you know where I’m coming from.
Although Kim will always be the most important person in my life .. my one and only .. I really hope to also share a smile with you in the coming year.
Happy New Year!
