Lots of my friends are coming up with their 'word' for 2009. I can't seem to come up with anything that jumps out at me. I just want 2009 to be a better year for everyone. It seems that my scrapbooking buddies and I have had our share of grief and sorrow in 2008, so I'm hoping that we all have more joy in our lives for 2009. Maybe JOY will be my word for 2009. I would like to find a lot of JOY in all things and for all people.
I'm sure 2009 will be a year of challenges for our country and our economy, but hopefully by this time next year we will see many positive differences.
Here's hoping everyone has a great 2009. Best wishes from the Mersman household.
