a fresh new year

another fresh new year is here . . .another year to live! to banish worry, doubt, and fear, to love and laugh and give!

this bright new year is given me to live each day with zest . . . to daily grow and try to be my highest and my best!

i have the opportunity once more to right some wrongs, to pray for peace, to plant a tree, and sing more joyful songs! - william arthur ward

we're back from vacation. five huge duffel bags and one large box later...i'm mostly unpacked. and here i sit, ready to welcome and embrace a fresh new year. excited about the possibilities.

2009 is a year that surely will bring lots of excitement and changes. business changes. possibly big ones. life changes. we will most likely be moving this summer, as steve is up for reassignment in july. some possiblities that steve has shared with me...north carolina and colorado are two that have been briefly mentioned. however, steve has not talked to the detailer and nothing is real until orders are in hand. but, i'm hoping (so hoping) to know something in the next few months. this limbo phase, this period of unknown, is rather difficult for me...but i try and be patient.


our NV vacation was so awesome. we woke christmas day to 10 inches of snow that had fallen overnight...truly a magical, winter wonderland. this christmas was one that could have potentially been a very difficult one, especially for the kids, having to spend it without their daddy, but steve's family made our christmas so wonderful. we had such a blast and kiele is now begging me to move to carson city, NV. oh and steve's mom has me hooked on ABBA right now, since watching the mamma mia movie, which i loved.

here's to a happy and hopeful new year. a year filled with singing, dancing, loving, living, laughing, growing, giving and...peace! stay safe.
