This year is almost over and I am taking a moment to reflect over the last 12 months. I name years before they happen and in 2008 I named 2009 the Year of Growth (as in personal growth for myself) and I was very excited about it. Well, it has been a year of personal growth and it was all tough stuff. I like to think of myself as being an optimist..but I am am so over 2009 and so ready for 2010 to begin. Oh and by the way..I have named 2010 The Year of Blessings.
