What can I say?
I lost my dear father this year in early March. That set the tone for the rest of 2009.
We celebrated -- in a toned down way -- our dear daughter Adina's bat mitzvah in August.
We traveled as a family to Israel in August.
My oldest child started high school in September.
His braces came off while his friends' braces went on!
Some of my poetry was published.
I marked 16 wonderful years of marriage to my beshert.
The good mixed in with the sad. Such is life...
As 2009 nears its end later this week, I will continue to remember this year's goings-on and will look forward to a brighter 2010.
I wish each and every one of you a bright, happy and healthy 2010. May your year be filled with celebrations of every kind and good times shared with family and friends.
