2009 ... What a year ... so many changes, so many adjustments, hurts, anger, loss of dear friends, as goes this life ... so many lessons to try to learn ... but the joyful blessings outweigh everything else! As I posted to facebook for the new year:
to all my friends and family: may your year ahead be blessed .. what was broken be mended, what was hurtful be healed, what was joyful be joyful still ..
The family surprised Gene with an early 60th birthday party on Christmas Eve. His birthday is January 2, but we knew it would be easier to surprise him early, plus the Waggoner family was already getting together !
