Good Riddance

31 Dec

Dear 2010,

Goodbye. Farewell. So Long. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Thanks for the dog, and maybe for the house, and definitely for the healthy baby on my lap. But you can take your hospital time and being laid off and unemployment and homeowners insurance claims and shove it where the sun don’t shine.

Here’s to a boring, stable, low-key 2011. In which my only resolution is to load and run the dishwasher on a somewhat regular basis.

Babies are like fruit. They only spoil when ignored.

First Year

Will you let me be your servant, let me be as Christ to you?

Pray that I may have the grace to let you be my servant too.

We are pilgrims on a journey, we are travelers on the road,

We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ-light for you in the nighttime of your fear.

I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping, when you laugh, I’ll laugh with you.

I will share your joys and sorrows, ’til we’ve seen this journey through.
