Here it is, almost 9:30 P.M. on January 1, 2009, and I have not even THOUGHT of New Year’s Resolutions until about ten minutes ago when I saw an online story about them. Wow! Talk about how life changes! Every other year of my life – at least since I was old enough to know the difference between January 1st and July 1st – I’ve had at least one list of New Year’s Resolutions written out by this time on January 1st.

So what are my resolutions? There’s really only one: To get through this first year of little Lily’s chemotherapy for leukemia with our family and relationships intact and to provide her with as much support and love as I possibly can. At the end of 2009, we will not even be half way through this journey.

    sounds about like my new years except i havent made any resolutions in over 14 years. i dont ever keep them anyway so why waste time writing them. Hope 2009 is a better year for you.

    I usually write resolutions. I stick with them for a few days, maybe a month. Then I forget all about them. I wrote them every year anyway. Guess I don’t want to admit that it’s futile. I’m sorry about your granddaughter. My prayers are with you.
