Of New Year’s resolutions

Down under it's summer, eh? Here I have about a foot of snow, streets are ice and life is snuggled in for the winter. I am beginning new year looking forward to best year of my life. I have most exciting training event (I am training 125 fire trainers in our state of South Dakota, very, very rural) and am their only trainer for two days. Then I go to New York state to train at their Fire Academy, then to Oregon state to talk to their fire chiefs. If I don't get any more training work, this will be a great year. I lost 22 pounds in 2008 and am going to get to my best weight, about 190-195 this year, goal is not to LOSE WEIGHT but to GAIN HEALTH! Am writing poems and short stories and POSTING THEM, short stories on myspace and poems on IP. This will be my BEST YEAR EVER~ hope yours is too, thanks for encouragement, Fred

Wow, Fred! This is exactly the sentiment that I wrote about in my blog.

I also, read several other bloggers who have said this in other ways and with other words. The amazing thing is that we are all saying the same thing from around the world. I think this must be an important time!

Blessing for the New Year. Glad you are you!

Peace, L

This is just PERFECT, dear Fred!

Nothing to add, just fully agreeing. I am going through BIIIG changes and I am positive that things will work out fine.

Your enthusiasm is contagious.
