Out with the old...

2009 is on its way out- already gone in some parts of the world- and many people are saying, "Good Ridance!"

Yes, it's been a rough year for the vast majority of the planet's occupants and most days there is little good new reported in the headlines, but surely there have been some good things that have happened over the last 12 months. In spite of the rotten economy, lousy job market, strange weather, and crazy political junk going on, I've managed to think of a few wonderful things that have happened to me this year.

1. In April we settled hubby's accident claim and were able to pay off ALL of our debt.
2. In June I got my very first ever brand spanking new car- a 2009 Jeep Wrangler.
3. In August we packed up and moved from Washington to Kentucky and bought our first home.
4. My children have settled in wonderfully, and are doing amazing in school.
5. We are all healthy and have, so far, managed to avoid the dreaded Swine Flu.
6. Our first Christmas in our new home was wonderful and so blessed.

I know there are more but I'm going to stop there. We have been blessed this year in spite of all the negative things that have managed to bring many in this country to their knees and, in my opinion, on our knees is where we need to be more often.

So, what kind of good things have happened for you this year (2009)? And what do you hope for in the year to come?
