No time like the present, right?
Clearly, I am too domesticated these days to want to travel out for an evening of reverie on new year's eve. Instead, we had a really fun evening at home with another family who came over to ring in the new year with us. Our three kids really get along well with theirs, as they are all very close in age (3 matched sets, if you will). We watched the Times Square ball make its descent at midnight, then the older kids were so wired that I just now got them to bed at about 1:30am.
Now that it's finally quiet, I thought I should write a very quick post to start off 2009.
I want to make this one short, despite my natural tendencies to get long-winded.
I want to offer my sincerest wishes for all of you for a very happy and prosperous new year. I feel that 2009 will be far better than 2008, for a myriad of reasons that you can probably already guess.
In 2009, my wife and I are looking forward to welcoming our fourth child, a little girl. Frankly, this fact alone is enough to make it exciting.
Hearty thanks to all of you who regularly read my blog, and to those of you who find my writing interesting enough to have subscribed to my blog at some point.
May God richly bless your business, family, and loved ones in the upcoming year.
With regard to the title of this post, give that a second to really sink in. Every minute you experience really is always in the present, so there's no reason to dwell on the past or worry about the future. I realize this may sound a little trite, but it's also the truth.
As always, thanks for reading!
