“ There’s something about this time of year that prompts a person to reflect on who he has become and how that image may differ from who he ideally would like to be. Maybe it’s the season of thankfulness followed by the season of giving. Maybe it’s the fresh blanket of snow that clings forgivingly to the earth, covering up our transgressions and offering us a fresh start. Maybe it really is something as mundane as the turn of the calendar’s page. If you’ve been less than successful with your past resolutions, maybe this year you should set your sites to a more obtainable goal. You might consider with this resolution.

I’m so thankfull to the God for all of things that he gave to me. This year 2010-2011 is the best year ever that I ever had!.
