welcoming 2009

Last night was loads of fun. Played games, drank martinis, ate too much food, and toasted to 2009. I don't think I've ever been so excited to welcome in a new year. I hope my expectations of 2009 aren't too high!

We toasted to having a Tigger kind of year. Carolyn said this in her post on making life good:
I do believe in the power of Tiggerness. As 2008 ends, and as you contemplate what sort of 2009 you will experience, my hope is that you will create the sunshine in others' lives that will spill inevitably and powerfully into your own in healthy and lifegiving ways.
I've been having way too many Eeyore kind of moments. Although its okay to have these moments and to be real in life, it's time to usher in more Tigger experiences. I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet when feeling very Eeyoreish. My guess is that it is about my focus. I am continually reminded that God is enough for me. It is in Him that I find my hope. As 2009 begins, my prayer is that I will be mindful of God's promises in the good and not so good times.

My hope is for a lifegiving year. One that is characterized by the power of Tiggerness to positively impact myself and those around me.
