A new beginning

I'd be hard pressed to say which one of these was true of me this time around!

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

-- Bill Vaughan

I must acknowledge this much: I'm very glad to see the end of 2008. Well, we survived it and may the New Year, as it brings us a new president, bring us a restored sense that things can get better after all.

Blessings on you all.


  1. Blessings to you, Ellie. I always read, rarely comment, but I must say I'm so very glad to have found you.

    I have to say that as far as 2008 went ... I'm both!

    all the best to you ...
