It is that time of year for introspection and evaluation of life, goals, hopes and dreams. I am 43 years old and will be 44 in 2012. My life has not turned out at all like I dreamed of as a child but that does not mean that it is not a good life. I am blessed with the love of God. I have a roof over my head and food on my table. I have a wonderful family and amazing friends. I still have reasonable health (a few bumps in the road but not enough to cause too much trouble). I have many interests so I am never bored. I often wish I had more money but I am pretty sure that I am not alone in that wish. I have my eyesight so I can enjoy the world around me.
