Hi. We've only known each other a couple of days, and I want to let you know that you are welcome here. It's not that I didn't like the last one, but I can't say I wasn't glad to see him go. You seem nicer, mainly because anyone seems nicer than he was. You all look nice in the beginning, though. That's your trick.

I know you can't make me any promises. I don't expect diamond sunbursts or marble halls. I just want to ask for a reprieve. I think I've had enough Lessons, thank you. I'd much rather you give me some space to work the fertile ground the other left behind. I've got a lot to do, you see. I don't have time for Bonnie Blues breaking their necks on ponies. If you give me your love, I will grow you a beautiful garden, and I will feed you its fruits.

I think this is going to work out, 2005.

Oh, and be nice to my friends. They deserve your affection.


I stayed home the first Sunday of the year because Caleb woke up sick - he was better in a few hours - but I enjoyed listening to the rain on the roof and praised God for His blessings so early in the year. FUnny, though, I went on to ask Him for more blessings unless we had some lesson to learn. Can't believe I actually asked for that. I prayed for patience once, too. I'll never do that again. There's only one way to learn patience. Practice. I'll pray that you do get a reprieve from too many lessons this year and find wonderful blessings planted throughout 2005. LOL

My Mom used to say that, too: to be careful what you pray for, especially if it's patience-related.

We'll see how the new year is really starting out after I hear from my midwife. The first couple days have been boring though which I suppose is preferable to many things.

So glad to hear from you, sweetie. I applaud your courageous hail to 2005--you are so brave.

As for me, I'm so happy about my life right now that I cry if I think too much about it.

What I mean to say is: I had YEARS, too. And it seems to me that there's Much Hope for you.

*hugs* from me, and *slightly cramped happy kicks* from the Pumpkin Girl

Yes - what you said. You know why.

I totally expect diamond sunbursts this year.

"coloring-out-of-the-borders" now that's why I love shawn. A graceful admonition to the old year and a hope for the new year. now that's why I love you.

I feel like 2004 was the year without a Santa Claus.
