Had to include a beautiful image to end the year right!
2005 was one of the best and worst years for me!The Best:
I have been incredibly blessed this year with new and continuing friendships. Which is far better than any contest win!
The best thing that happened was being able to give my Mom a new car
! Especially given the fact that she's been so sick this past year and had never in her life had a new car!
Another major highlight this year was winning the Will & Grace trip
for my parents. I hadn't mentioned this yet but my parents had already planned a trip to Las Vegas for their anniversary this coming February.
They were given a choice of dates to travel from and the one that fit best into their schedule. Unfortunately, the one date that best fit into their schedule was right before the trip they had already planned to Vegas as there are no substitutions in the travel plans for the Will & Grace trip, they'd have to fly back here from L.A and then fly from here to Vegas.
My Mom mentioned this to the contact person for the trip and the contact person said she'd look into making an exception. Well, the sponsors are going to fly my parents straight from L.A. to Vegas!The Worst:
Stepping on the scale and realizing that I've reached the highest weight I had ever been in my life! This ranks up there as the one of lowest points in my life but being given the opportunity to change my life around when I thought it was impossible gives me a lot of hope!
Another low point was getting my credit record tampered with - bastards!
All in all, I can't really complain! This was a wonderful and prosperous year for me and I hope all my actions and reactions set me toward a path of positivity!
I hope that all these blessings and good fortunes continue into the new year not just for myself but for everyone!
I always get misty eyed when hearing Auld Lang Syne
but the tears shed this year will be only happy ones! Hope that they are happy ones for you as well!
Even if they are not, here's hoping that next year is a better one for you! Tomorrow, you have to power to start a revolution in yourself!
I'll see you in the new year! ♥
.....We'll tak a cup o kindness yet, For auld lang syne!
