Let's Collect Old Calendars and Ceremoniously Burn 2008, Such a Year We Should Never Have Again.

The Title of this blog is a quote from my friend and fellow Quilt Maverick, Margaret Ball. It sorta sums up 2008 for so many of the friends that I love and admire.

I am that sorry for the delay in wishing you a great New Year in 2009. I for one, am very glad that 2008 is now behind us. I know it's been a rough year for so many. I am grateful that this year wasn't the absolute worst for me, but with the election and the economy crisis, I am very glad that it's over.

I don't do resolutions, they are more in the way of guidelines, as it were. I want to continue to learn something new everyday. I want to be a nicer person. I want to continue to de-clutter my life.

Take care of yourselves, everyone, I hope and pray that you have a better 2009.

I agree whole-heartedly!
When I woke on the morning of Jan. 1st, I literally felt like a 100 pound weight had been lifted off me. While I realize it is only psychological, it was such a RELIEF. I have never, in my life, felt like that at the beginning of a new year.
May we have HOPE again!

Hey, Ann. Yes indeed, it was a tough year. New Year, new start and hopefully this one won't be so insane.
