I find myself at a new place in my life. I am experiencing a need to serve; to make a difference. I continued my yearly holiday tradition of donating to a favorite charity instead of giving presents to individuals. There is so much more I need to do, however. My New Years Resolution will be to be more compassionate, more accepting, more generous and less self absorbed. 2009 will be a good year, filled with much change and hope. Much like the new Administration.
