Welcome 2009!!!

So, starting off the New Year, I can't find my soon as I find it I'll post the latest for now, just a quick new year post. I don't do resolutions like many of my blogger friends, instead I reflect on my life and think about things that I wish for the new year. On that list are
1. That I would spend more time with God, whether that be in Bible study, or personal times praying and thinking about Him.
2. Say thank you to those who have invested in my life and continue to let them know it.
3. Forgive those who have wronged me.
4. Be the best wife and mom and I can be.
5. Even though I didn't vote for Obama, I wish he would disprove my doubts and be the best US president ever.
As far as reflections go, I saw this on Lori's and Maria's blog, and it fits the new year reflections although it encompasses many years of my life.
