Happy, Happy 2009!

Pin It
In the blink of an eye, a clink of glasses and heartfelt embraces, 2008 was laid to rest and 2009 began.

I have never hung my political laundry out for all to see on my blogs but this month, this year and the years ahead hold a promise, too long absent, of hope, renewal, pride, redemption, peace and global respect. This month a wise and intelligent inspiration of a man, his family and take-my-breath-away cabinet will be installed in the White House. And I am overjoyed.

So in the link below I'd like to share with you a beautiful video clip that for me personifies the hope, joy and global fellowship that so many are now envisioning as we begin 2009. Happy New Year.

My brother and I were just talking about this tonight...you can feel it in the air...it just feels right. Finally a man with integrity and smarts is in the office. Eight years of buffoonery was just unbelievable in my eyes...how could we be so blind.(he didn't get my vote)

Now it's time for the world to work together, not just us, we all have the dream and the hope, near and far.

Thanks for spreading the hope...

Oh, my gosh! Christine, I just posted this type photo on my food blog. What is it? I was supposed to see the red stuff looking so bright in the snow. Anywho, great minds think alike, huh? ;-)

Thanks for the link. It was very nice.

Hi Paz, My photo is of a cotoneaster. It grows all over our property. Almost weed-like. I love your photo - the berries really pop against the white.
