January, Here We Come!

I have to admit that 2008 is a year I won't miss. Although it has been a very full and productive year at the Wald Law Group, and an equally full and exciting year for our family -- with one son starting high school and the other now fully entrenched in his middle school experience, and many good family times to remember and now new puppies to fill our days with laughter -- it has also been a year in which we have experienced more than the usual share of family illness and loss, compounded by bruising political chaos and a financial meltdown unlike any we've seen in our lifetimes. At the end of the day, when I look back, I am truly glad it's almost over. So, to celebrate a new year and a new moment in history, our younger son and I are flying east at the end of the month to experience the inauguration. We will honor our family history with a trip to the Holocaust Museum; honor our nation's history on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday; and then herald in our future on inauguration day. We are very excited. Barack Obama ran his campaign around a theme of hope, and "change we can believe in." I am ready to be hopeful, and am cognizant of many changes that now feel possible as we head into the New Year. I wish all of you reading this a happy and safe New Year, and a 2009 that is healthy, joyful and productive.
