I know I ma playing catch up on my posts so please indulge this somewhat dated event. One of the real gifts that was given to my wife and I during our trip to Hawaii was my mom watching our two children every morning for one hour. Starting January 1 every morning, until we left, we went to a Starbucks literally a one-minute drive from my parent's home. I could not have started 2008 off better: Starbucks coffee, a Moleskine journal to collect my thoughts, a Bible and a new Ipod Nano filled with some great new tunes. 2008 is going to be great!
