This year has sucked on so many levels for so many people. For me, two massive hammers. But I shouldn't whine. I have my health, my kids are healthy, I have a job (works hard to provide value to company and keeps fingers crossed like many of us), I have a roof over my head, I have food in my belly, I am not living paycheck to paycheck. I realize and appreciate that I am better off than 95% of the people living today. If you're reading this you are likely in that same narrow strata of humanity.
Still, 2008 sucked for a lot of people. I hope 2009 is better. I wish you a Happy New Year.
