Happy Birthday Margaret!

Margaret's Birthday, originally uploaded by kathy photo.

Today, the first of the year, is Margaret's birthday. Margaret summoned the Smith family, the Lim family + Lyndsay Mokund and Bex. We ate lots and lots of good food - Asian Legend is so great. Afterwards, we went back to my place and played Mah Jong (well, I watched, in between rolling a ball of yarn, changing my blog template, and watching the Seu Jorge & Ana Carolina DVD again - however, I declare that I will be more in to games this year.)

It's fun to see everyone grow up. Love that Lyndsay is back. A brilliant, beautiful and hilarious girl. We're gonna join the Y together tomorrow. Excellent!

Tomorrow - I am planning on being at work at 8am. Gonna start with that and work on being consistent with that. Last year, I kept trying for 7 am - baby steps, Kathy, baby steps.

Life is good.
I was blessed huge last year -

  • Gonzo got to do a presentation for Easter with awesome friends
  • Resonate's U2 night
  • got to fly to Winnipeg for a day, to run media for Pastor Smith's presentation
  • got to fly to Cape Breton for a weekend to shoot some video
  • got to make a few videos for General Conference
  • got to celebrate my parents 30th wedding anniversary by treating them to a trip to Montreal
  • moved my childhood piano into my home
  • celebrated my second wedding anniversary
  • got to meet some more of Gonzo's family
  • got to have a vacation in Europe
  • got to see my friends Tom and Alice
  • had the opportunity to help lead Resonate
  • visited Wiser in Cali
  • became Beka's friend
  • Juan is healthy again

    I'm sure so much more happened that I am leaving out right now - but I wasn't very good at journal-keeping last year. It was year that I know that I got to learn more about myself - about my strengths, and more importantly, my weaknesses. It hurts sometimes to admit some things to yourself, but you have to if you're gonna look forward.

    On to 2007 - and by 2008, I hope that you are all still with me.
