The end of the year is a time to reflect about the events that have transpired over the last year and to look forward, making plans and preparing for the upcoming year.
This year has been a tough one for me. I relocated to another state and virtually had to start all over, finding employment, making new acquaintances, and finding my way around a new city. Through it all I have family and friends that have been nurturing and supportive, letting me know that they had my back when things got a little rough.
Sometimes people do not know how much they are helping with just a kind utterance that can mean so much to the recipient. Many times since January I have felt that “I had bitten off more than I could chew” in respect to my move, but someone always stepped up and reassured me that everything would work out. I feel truly blessed and want to take this time to count my blessing, rather than making resolutions that I probably won’t keep.
Things I am Thankful For:
1. My family and friends and wish them the best that life has to offer in 2008.
2. Having a warm and comfortable place to lay my head, especially when less fortunate have nowhere to live.
3. Having nourishment when there are those who are hungry.
4. Knowing that everyone I love and care about is safe and not involved in that wretched war.
5. My health.
For those of you reading this that are experiencing hardship and difficulties, know that I hope you and yours prosper in the coming year. Have A Happy 2008!
