Gratefully, 2009 is Over

Today my wife, kids and I are wrapping up our 2-week Christmas holiday in Florida and the Caribbean.  It was a little “different” for us Northerners as this was the first time we celebrated Christmas without the cold and snow.  But we still took time, as always, to reflect on the real meaning and reason for the season. We had a blessed holiday and I hope you did too.

Earlier this week, I checked a few things off my Master Dream List, since we were able to accomplish them on this holiday:

  1. Take my wife and kids on a Caribbean cruise.
  2. Take the family to Disney World.

I also spent a few minutes looking over that list at what had been accomplished in the last year.

Gratefully, 2009 is over!  What I mean is that 2009 has come to an end, and I’m grateful for all that I’ve accomplished in this year.  A number of my dreams and goals were achieved, and I made progress on several others that are still in the works for 2010.

Some of these were achieved due to direct effort and planning on my part.  Others were total blessings that I had no control over at all – like the cruise and the trip to Disney World.

2009 has been a great year for me in so many ways. What about you?
