A New Year with hope

I hope all of our readers can find some ray of hope for the new year. We may come to realize things will not be as good as they once were. Our goals may have to wait a little longer, our dreams may have to be put aside for a year or two. We may have to work harder and longer in life and we may have to live with a fact that our children s/grandchildren's lives will not be as good as ours were in the past.

We must keep our chins up and find ways to be happy with much less.

We can, if we try.

After reading your other story about the 99ers losing their benefits, I find it a bit tough to find much to be thankful for today. But for the little I do still have, I am eternally grateful, and willing to share it with those with less than I have. It helps me to remember that there are lots of people in more dire straights than I am, and that keeps me thankful.

You are dead on Pillsbury in saying we can if we try. Things may never again be as good as we thought they were a few years ago. But if we get more realistic in our wants and needs, we can find a way to be happy with what we have.

I hope there is an extension of benefits for us 99ers, I hope that we stop bailing out business and ignoring our citizens, I hope that the unions agree to a fair change in the amount of health care costs the town covers, I hope we end the wars we are fighting, I hope the Koreans don’t blow each other up, I hope I can hold on to my house which is now upside down, I hope the increase in property taxes here in Framingham is not what causes me to lose my home, I hope we elect new selectmen, I hope Walsh surprises us and is better than I suspect he will be, I hope the Mayans are wrong and this does not all end on 12/21/11, I hope when the end of 2011 roles around I am not still hoping for better days instead of seeing them, but mostly I hope we all can keep level heads and common sense in the dark days I suspect are still ahead of us as far as the economy goes. Best wishes for a healthy and stable new year to all my fellow bloggers, and thanks to Pillsbury for doing this blog.
