On a ship sitting in a bay lit up by fireworks and the lights of San Francisco, we said goodbye to a year that has been more difficult for us than any other and welcomed in a new one. We danced until our feet hurt. The music was loud, the crowd was huge, and our spirits were high. I just finished reading "Tuesdays With Morrie" (ten years late.) and with the lessons of the book fresh on my mind, I threw inhibition to the wind and danced like no one was watching. David spun me until I was dizzy. A dance teacher once told him that all a guy needs to do to make a girl happy is spin her on the dance floor and he took him seriously. I laughed more than I have in months and it felt even better than I remember.

Looks like such fun,,,,,, you keep that fun loving spirit that I remember about you and just dance. Life takes us through hard times but we must travel the valleys between the mountain tops.. The Father God will keep a watchful eye as we journey.. We grow stronger and we learn more of Him....... Happy New Year Sandy and David,, May 2007 bring blessing that you cannot contain.
Love
