I have to admit I'm glad to see you. Your friend 2011 was a trying one. I'm not sure I wanted him to hang around any longer than necessary.
But I have high hopes. Hopes for the 365 days we will spend together. Where you will lead me. What lessons you will show me. Will you bring in new friends? Or old? Perhaps better health. More happiness. Less worry.
Who knows. But you will come to know that I don't like surprises. That's not my style. I like things planned out and organized. So I'm a little concerned. But I'm putting my faith in you. Faith that you will lead me where I need to go.
I hope to make more time to reflect on our year. Perhaps blog about it more. 2011 got away from me. Life got away from me. But no more. Not with you.
I hope that we can be good friends. Not just mere acquaintances. We shall see.
