Happy New Year's Eve

I had every intention of posting yesterday after I got home from an awesome dinner with a great friend after being let out of work early however a migraine and the sickness that always follows kept me from doing so.
Almost 100% this morning...which is good...
Yesterday was a great day....fun day at work..not too terribly stressful..and they let us out early.  Met a friend whom I haven't seen in months, hung out, talked, had dinner.  Hubby had to work late last night so I am glad that I accepted her last minute invitation.
As this year winds down and a new one takes over there are many many things that I have to smile about- good friends, good hubby, a house to live in, my kitties, a good job.  I am thankful for the world of blogdom and all of the wonderful people I have met throughout the last year who are all over the world.  I am grateful for my health and for the ability to continue to live my life, on my terms, the way I feel it should be.
Reflecting on the past year leads me to what the new year will bring.  I don't believe in New Year's resolutions...the average new year's resolution is broken in 12 days.  I don't know what the year will bring---I do know that there will be a combination of happy and sad, highs and lows, friends will come, friends will go, there will be snow and rain to go along with the sunshine and I am sure there will be disappointments and moments of great happiness.  What I know for sure is that there will be moments in every day that I will have a choice to make---one that will affect, drastically or not, the path that I will walk down this year.  May I have the wisdom and guidance to ensure that the path I choose is one that is right, not only for me but for the others that will be affected by that choice as well.
I hope that your New Year's eve is full of whatever you want it to be full of..whether it be a rousing good time out with friends at a bar/restaurant/party or a quiet time at home with your loved ones.  At midnight, remember to turn the page to the next chapter- and relish in the blank pages that you will get to fill up over the next year!!
See you in 2011.
