Farewell 2007

Written December 28, 2007

Here it is, the end of another saga. Farewell 2007…Hello 2008. God, I hope you rock!! I wanted to have my last blog of the year be a thankful one. I wanted to share my thanks in a way that is personal to those I’m thankful for. I wanted it to be goal oriented so that when I forget my way and become lazy, I can look back and remind myself. I also wanted a way to let the universe know what I expect this year. I think the universe gets confused when I make fun of something or get angry over something. I wanted to send Mr. Universe a clear message so that, hopefully, he won’t mess anything up this year. Lastly, I wanted to wish everyone the most joyous, loving, wondrous and delicious year ever. You deserve it!
