I’m taking a blogging break for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
I usually take this time to reflect on the year that was. The highs and the lows. The good times and the bad. Those who are still here and those who have left my life. I feel fortunate that I am here to celebrate another New Year’s Eve.
I want to wish all of you the best as we prepare for the final year of this decade. Hard to believe Y2K was 9 years ago. Remember the scare we all got about Y2K? It seems like yesterday and so long ago.
Many of us have reason not to be so celebratory. Some have lost thousands in the stock market and on the value of their homes. Others have lost their jobs. However, we do have life and we do have family and we do have each other. We have hope and we have a future. Most of all, we have faith that tomorrow can be a better day.
Despite the direction our economy is going, please enjoy tonight. Celebrate a new year and a chance to wipe the slate clean as well as a chance to start anew.
And please, do it safely and responsibly. Do not drink and drive. If you do drink, let someone who’s not drive you home … or better yet, call a cab!
Happy New Year!
