one year


2009
.

it flew by
like the trees
that line the highway
on this journey called life

as the miles ticked away from here... there ... everywhere
2009 was a much happier trip with all of you along for the ride
may this new year be one of great adventure & love
I am grateful for your friendship
along the road

I always think the first part of the year so slow and then the last half flies by in a blink of an eye.

Happy 2010, I look forward to seeing what it brings for you.

I've been so busy doing nothing much that I haven't been around to visit my friends in too long. So, though my wishes are late, I mean them with my whole heart. May your year be filled with laughter. May all your surprises be happy ones. May you remember to count your blessings. May you know each day how very much you are loved. Happy new year, my friend.
