Per the awesome e-card that pal Bri just sent me (courtesy of the hi-LAR-ious someecards.com), it may be the antidepressants talking, but I’m feeling somewhat optimistic about 2010! Let’s see, things to be grateful about, in no particular order:
2. Being blessed by fate, circumstance and whatever higher power you believe in, with the best network of friends and family a Mother Drucker could ever hope to ask for. (If you’re reading this, this means YOU.) I am more humbled by the love I’ve been given in this life than mere words could ever describe.
3. And while I’m at it, a shout-out to the good ol’ US of A. Warts and all, being born here is like winning the lottery. And if you don’t believe that, just ask an immigrant. Right Grandma Faye?
4. My job and my health.
6. That Northwestern will either A. win or B. not embarrass ourselves at the Outback Bowl January 1. GO CATS!
7. The hope, however dim, that the Chicago Bears will replace Lovie Smith in the off-season.
That’s all for now! Wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy and harmonious 2010. See you next year!
