A slightly belated New Year's post...

On New Year's Eve, NPR radio posted a question on their facebook page:

"If you could summarize 2009 in one word, what would it be?"

My sister asked the same question on her page. Answers ranged from "Contentious" to "Emotional", "Challenging" to "Enlightening", "Expensive" and "Over".

My answer? "Blessed". 2009 will forever be known in this household as The Year of Blessings. Countless, unmeasurable, unmerited blessings. Even now, reflecting back on the year, I'm humbled by it all.

So, if you could summarize 2009 in one word, what would it be?

(Not in an Obama way, btw. Just that everything in our life is different than it was at the beginning of the 2009)

Glad for your blessings.

Over with. Well, that's two, but there's no way you can make that word into one.

Eye-opening (can that still be considered one word?)
