Happy New Year!
Friday, the first day of 2010, will start a new decade. Good luck with new resolutions or ones carried over from years before. Here is a chance for us all to make a fresh start.
May the losses of 2009 turn to gains in 2010. (Unless it's weight and body fat; in that respect, may your gains turn to losses!) I wish you and yours an amazing new year. May it bring you much joy, health, prosperity, forgiveness, love, generosity, grace, growth and happiness.
