True Story











{January 2, 2011}   It’s a New Year Baby!

True Story:  2010 sucked.

I could write an entire book on the last 12 months alone. I feel like a new woman and 110% better about 2011. I realize I probably think this every new year. I famously claim that all years, are going to be “My Year”.

To show how much I’ve grown I actually toasted a friend yesterday and said, “I think this is going to be “your year”. See how sweet I am?

Now that I think about it the last decade has been pretty tough and I am looking forward to smoother sailing.

2010 Sucked and here’s why:

Divorce

Oil Spills

Vampires

BP

Bankruptcy

The Iron Bowl

Losing cherished Family Members

Stress

Shall I go on?

2011 is going to Rock and here’s why:

Sundance

Cute Boys

New Opportunities

Alabama whooped Michigan State on the first day of the year. Roll Tide!

G Monkey

I’m thinner

 Robert Redford

Shall I go one?

True Side Story:  I spent New Years day with family and friends watching football, eating good food, drinking bubbly, dancing and laughing.

Our dear friend, BC, passed away a year or so ago. I happen to notice my friend DP was wearing an extremely funny ball cap yesterday. Let’s just say DP enjoys “the sauce” and leave it at that. His hat was plain, and across the front said “Betty Ford Clinic”. When I pointed this irony out, my Dad said, “You know who’s hat that is?”

Me:  Who?

Dad:  BC (our dearly departed friend).

Me:  You know what? He still had my car keys, that SOB.

True Story:  If God brings you to it, he’ll bring you through it.

Every dog had his day. We all have good years (decades) and bad ones. The good news is the sun rises most days.

I am extremely grateful for the challenges 2010 brought me. If I hadn’t experienced them I wouldn’t have appreciated the coming success and grace from God. God Bless and Happy New Year!

True Story:  Let’s kick 2010 to the curb. Bias out.
