Every year it is a tradition for me to choose a song that reminds me of the year that is passing… as we go into 2009, the song that reminds me of 2008 will have to be Nickleback: If Today Was Your Last Day.
2008 For me personally has been full of many trials and tribulations; I have lost a very dear friend, and reconnected with some other dear ones. I have moved past things that were holding me back, and expanded my Horizons… I have started an adventure that will carry into 2009 and beyond, with someone that is very close to my heart and grows closer every day.
“Against the grain should be a way of life
what's worth the price is always worth the fight,
every second counts 'cause,
there's no second try,
so live like you're never livin’ twice,
don't take the free ride in your own life.
If today was your last day,
and tomorrow was too late.
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?
Would you call those friends you've never seen?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one your dreaming of?”

Winter in Mississippi is not a very wintery event usually, believe me when we found out that it was supposed to snow we were very shocked and surprised. However when a majority of our state turned into a big slush puppie (minus the flavor)… needless to say I am sad. I would have loved to have had the opportunity to have built a rare Mississippi snowman to post on here… but instead y’all will have to handle a bit of wet snow on a trampoline in a flooded back yard. Tonight, we get to have tons of fun… when most of this turns into rare Mississippi Ice!!!!

About the photo: I used to work at this very store, Linens ‘N Things at Dogwood Festival Market in Flowood, Mississippi. I was shocked to discover that the company had filed for bankruptcy and all the stores were closing. The people I worked with at this location were among the best people I had ever had the privilege of ever knowing, and I hope they all fair well in this new era in their lives.
