Happy New Year!

Another year is about to come to a close. While it wasn't a completely wonderful year for me, it did have some wonderful moments. The birth of my first granddaughter occurred at a time when the whole family needed a lift.

The economy is in the pits, people are loosing their jobs and their homes right and left.

Retirement accounts have hit all time lows.

Our government finally admitted something that we knew for at least the last 8 months...we are in a recession.

I am feeling quite blessed though. I have a job, Not a Grampy has a job, both of my children have jobs. We all have roofs over our heads and food on the table.

We have family that we love and that love us.

With that, I wish you each a Happy New Year and hope that 2009 is a Blessed year for you.
