A great start

Hello Friends-I hope you all were able to bring in the new year in a great way. I sure did. New Year's eve was celebrated with my boys and some fireworks I got them, we had a blast, it was about time. Then yesterday I invited some old friends over for a very traditional "southern" New Year's day dinner, corned beef brisket, collard greens, cooked cabbage, green bean w/potatoes, mac-n-cheese and of course black eyed peas! What a "prosperous" feast we enjoyed and great company. We all used to hang a lot then the evil one, who is no longer a part of us had worked very hard at splitting us all up and it has taken a year for us all to come back together. I toasted yesterday to having my friends back. We also had some great cocktails, pomegranate margaritas-YUMMEE!! This wonderful experience made me think that sometimes we can call up that long lost friend and try to see if we can enjoy what we had before and make it better for this great New Year! I truly missed friendship and know as I get older it means so much to me, so I am still in awe about what a great time we have all had and am looking forward to 2009 filled with great and wonderful times.



Remember: Revive the old to enjoy the "new"

I've also recently had an "evil one" trying to come between me and several of my close friends so I know exactly what you mean hun. So glad you got to have a nice day with you're real friends. I've discovered as I've aged that it's less important to have a lot of friends and more important to have true friends.

I agree with Kathy, true friends is where it's at!

Yes indeed, I'm so glad someone else ate black eyed peas for good luck and greens for wealth. That's our news year's tradition as well. Happy New Year!
