A Good Samaritan and a New Year

So today has been a crazy day. As blizzard one came to an end and before the start of blizzard two, I decided to venture down the block to the local CVS to grab a few items. On my way there, I got stuck! YUCK! Luckily a gentlemen stopped to help me but in the commotion, I locked my keys in the car with my CAR STILL RUNNING AND IN REVERSE!!!! I called the locksmith and waited an hour for him to get there. Luckily the kind man let me wait in his van. Tonight so happy to be back in my nice warm apartment and soooo soooo soooo thankful that there are still Good Samaritans out there. (I was actually shocked by the number of people who stopped to ask me if I needed help!)And so after today, I am glad for a new year to begin!

I can hardly believe that the end of 2010 is coming to a close tonight. Wow…2010 has been a year filled with so many emotions…happiness, sadness, joy, pain, etc. 2010 begin with the earthquake and Haiti and finding out that my friend Renee, her husband Ben, and Ben’s cousin Jonathan were in Haiti during the earthquake. Renee and Jon made it out but Ben was killed during the earthquake. So glad I was with WTS people during this time and also am thankful for the many people who surrounded us during these difficult days. There has not been a day when I haven’t thought of Ben, Renee, Jonathan or their families. Myfriend Sarah was also in Haiti but wasnt in the direct hit of the earthquake. So glad she was safe too! I also got to spend some time with my mom this summer sharing why CCM is one of my favorite places in the world and means the world to me. Life at work was busy and crazy but oh so good….so happy to still be in a place where I feel my gifts are so used there. 2010 also was spent with dealing with the many churches etc who have left the ELCA because of the homosexuality vote. It has been so difficult but I for one am thankful for the gift this vote was for my friends who have long awaited this. So much has happened this past year, but I am ready to put it in the books. I hope that 2011 brings you all happiness, prosperity, peace and joy! I also look forward to seeing what 2011 brings us all…maybe Ill finally meet my Mr. Right!!! 🙂 I am ringing in the New Year in my apartment; probably watching Carson Daly or Ryan Seacrest. Im not venturing out after my adventure this afternoon!Happy New Year to my blog readers and my dear friends!!!!
