I am forever blown away by the talents of my children. As we prepare to bid adieu to 2009, I’d like to share with you all something my daughter Sarah wrote. For the record, she is 13.
On the day of New Yearâ€™s Eve
The world is sitting, waiting
For the day we all believe
Has cause for celebrating.
Staying up till late at night
Watching on TV
Down pole to drop a ball of light
And then we scream, â€œYippee!â€
Another year is oâ€™er and done
And we are satisfied
Recalling days of mirth and fun
And fear, and hope, and pride.
Another year has started up
A new age will begin
We drink from a newer cup
And cast the old to the wind.
May you find the cause to celebrate the ending of 2009 and the start of 2010. Happy new year from me and the rest of the Gonzalez family.
