Well on this first day of the New Year, 2015, I am grateful that the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl are both on New Year’s Day, where they belong!  I am grateful that there is some sort of a playoff format to decide the number one college football team in the United States.  I might be more grateful if The University of Southern California (USC) was still playing for that top spot; next year!

I am mostly grateful for my continuous growth, mentally, this past year.  I am grateful for my successes and what I have learned from my failures.  I am grateful that I was able to help and watch my children grow.  I am grateful for the opportunities that I had in the year 2014 and I am looking forward to more in this next year as well.

Be Grateful!  I am!
