A new year provides the opportunity to do everything just a little bit better

  • Jan 6, 2009 at 8:00PM

Happy New Year! After all the snow and wind, the economic meltdown and the political messes (and aren’t you thankful they don’t all belong to us here?) I am pleasantly surprised to find myself looking forward to this new year. I admit I tend to be optimistic, but I am definitely not Pollyanna. Still, I find that each new year gives me one more chance to do a little better than I did last year. It reminds me that even if things have fallen apart, life goes on and I still have the chance to try again. It reminds me of how God’s grace is like a new year – it tells me that this day is still in front of me, it isn’t over and I am not done yet. I have a new year to live in and to try to use a little better than the last one. I’m not out of time yet, so I can still pursue the things that matter most.

What I can’t say for sure is what plants will be reborn in the spring and what plants will be compost.

Lessons learned from mom continue to serve us well

  • Jan 6, 2009 at 8:00PM

Husky victory is just one prediction

  • Jan 6, 2009 at 8:00PM

Would anyone have predicted last January that the stock market would plunge from 13,000 to 8,500 by year’s end? That the Huskies would be the only major college football team to not win a game? That John McCain would be the Republican nominee for president, that his running mate would be the almost unknown governor of Alaska and that Barack Obama would be president? That more Americans would die violently in Chicago than in all of Iraq in 2008? That Washington Mutual, once as mighty a local institution as Safeco and Weyerhaeuser, would crash and burn and be picked up for pennies on the dollar by Chase?
