i have officially declared new year's day in the betmo household- january 20, 2009 at noon est. however, i realize that the rest of the planet will be celebrating tonight- so i wanted to take the opportunity to say "thank you" to all of my blog buddies and lurkers out there. 2008 was a struggle but the human spirit has begun to be awakened here in america. there will be many challenges ahead over the next few years and 2009 is the start of new beginning for all of us. many of our treasured beliefs in ourselves and our country have been shattered and many of our foundations are crumbling. but we can rise above and meet these challenges- global and domestic- together. not just americans helping americans- but reaching out to make the entire globe a better place. humbly, without arrogance offering ourselves as fellow human beings sharing a planet with others.
and those who don't sign on.... well, let them move to tex-ass :)
happy new year!!!!
