2008 was a year of great highs and lows for me, and I believe it may have been the same for many of you.
It's funny how the path where life leads is often surprising and unknown. At the beginning of '08, I could never have imagined that one of the brightest spots in my year would be the support I've found in the blogging world. I certainly couldn't have imagined the friends and connections I have made over the past months or how important this community would become to me.
While I have said it before, I must say it again- I have all of you who come here to read my words, all of you who comment, and all of you who have reached out to me with words of encouragement to thank for that very bright spot.
Wherever life's path takes me in the coming months, I am ready to discover what lies ahead in 2009! My greatest hope is for a year filled with more peace of mind, and, in the words of the Counting Crows, "there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last."
Here's wishing all of us a new year filled with hope, joy, and lots of love.
