Stop writing 2008 for goodness sakes!

At the commissary in the checkout line. I am sure I am not the only one who has done it in the early days of January. Hell, its only Jan 7 so its going to take me til at least March until I realize that it is actually 2009.
I am hoping this year will be a better year than last year but I think thats what everyone says when the ball goes down in Times Square each New Year. I really love my friend Ashley's saying because it always brings back the old Patty Loveless song, "How can I help you to say goodbye". Her favorite saying is: "Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same". Its one of the most depressing quotes but its so true. Sometimes I hate change because all you have left sometimes are just memories of past years. Times with my grandma were so taken advantage of and now that she is gone, each Christmas brings back those memories of the times I should have spent with her when I lived with her my senior year of high school. You never know when things happen until they do and thats where the dreaded "change" comes in.
I hope that I can spend more time with people who I love and not take advantage of those times doing meaningless things that have no importance in my life.
I also would like to get more in touch with God. He has been a big influence on my happiness and He has been there when I needed to vent and felt I had noone to talk to. I have been making more time for Him which was well needed.
I hope you all have a fabulous new year and continue to be my favorite readers, you are the greatest! :)
