I hope you had a wonderful celebration with those closest to you. For me the transition from 2008 to 2009 was spent with family and close friends. When the moment came, Darrell popped firecrackers—they do ward off the evil spirits, right? And then, at five minutes past midnight, the skies opened with a huge downpour. It felt like a blessing! The little girls played in the rain, sloshing in the puddles, and it was great: happy kids, happy adults, together in a blessing rain at the dawn of the new year.
May 2009 bring you and yours the riches of love, health and happiness. Happy New Year, everyone!
