Happy New Year (almost)!

Happy New Years (almost). I’m really hoping that 2010 will be a MUCH better year than the last couple of years have been.

We have had far too many deaths in the family the last few years. In 2009 Tekla’s father and grandmother both passed away.

My cousin, Malissa also passed away.

They will be missed greatly.

A while before that, one of Tekla’s youngest cousins passed away.

A long while before that, one of my cousins was in a coma for a very long time. Luckily he’s been out of it for a long while and is now recovering nicely. Before that, my grandfather passed away not long ago. Before that my other grandfather passed away just a few years ago.

All of these tragic events that we have witnessed in recent times has made me come to cherish each day. Life is worth living to the fullest – every minute of it, every day, every second!

In January, I plan to see my now one year old niece that I have never met up til now. In April, Tekla and I plan to celebrate our 5th Anniversary! 2010 WILL BE A GREAT YEAR! Let it be so, Amen.
