And it wasn't that bad. I held a friend's hand during the countdown, my eyes shut tight, my mouth repeating "I'm not ready yet, I'm not ready yet." 3...2...1...Happy New Year! My eyes opened and suddenly there it was - 2009 right in front of me.
Time doesn't stop no matter how badly we beg it to. So it's with this that I need to make every moment count. Realize that memories are left where they were made - in the past - and I need to look towards the future.
My wishes for 2009 are filled with prayers for peace in the holy land, and love and good vibes for those I hold dear in my heart no matter how near or far.
