New Year's Wishes

I'd like to take an opportunity to wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year filled with much happiness, good health, peace and prosperity! I am praying that "2009" will be the greatest year EVER for all of us!

Personally, I'm looking really forward to getting through the rest of my cancer treatment/surgeries, growing HAIR again, watching our son graduate, celebrating with a grad party - among other things.

Although "2008" probably won't go down in history as being one of the best years we've ever had and I honestly can't wait for it to be through, each trial we go through in life presents an opportunity to make us bitter or better....I've chosen to become better! I don't want to walk around with a bitter attitude, bemoaning all that's happened. Nope, instead I will focus on all I have been blessed with. And that is actually A's all about perspective, don't ya think?



  1. I love what you said about choosing to be bitter or better. I pray that 2009 will one where you are restored to good health and are feeling much, much better, as well as a year that is filled with wonderful new memories for you and your family! New Years Hugs, Susan

  6. Michelle, Happy New Year to you and yours! I too am looking forward to the new year and hoping for the same...good health, happiness, and prosperity.

    This year will go down as one of the worst years ever for me. Thank you for encouraging us to choose better, not bitter. I do choose bitter at times even though I try not to. We DO have so very much to be thankful for.

  7. Hang in there honey. That light at the end of the tunnel is God.
    I start radiation in a week or so, each day is alive with blessings.
