I know that my hope sounds like a cliche from a movie (oh wait it was in a movie), but as the mom of a son that is deployed right now to Iraq that has been gone for 9.5 months and has 5.5 more to go till he is home, and has already been given his deployment date for the beginning of 2010 to go to Afganistan for another year I would just like for everyone to get along. We have shed enough blood on these lands of our young soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines for countries that don't want us there and don't accept our help when offered. Bring our military home and let whatever peace can be developed and found in these countries come about by their own creation.
My hope for 2009 is to survive it! With a fresh hysterectomy, facing another surgery to repair on old break in my elbow, and 2 children getting married within 5 weeks of each other this Spring I just want to survive it gracefully. Oh yeah, and then after all that re-enter the work force to help pay for all this!!

My hope is that we all become hormonally balanced, suited to each of our individual needs. That we find a way out of the hormone jungle, and become effective jungle guides for those who are still wandering... And that we all have the best healthful year with peace and happiness.
That this is the year that I finally become pain free and I can return to full-time work without the thought that I will need to have time off due to my endo and related symptoms.
I too hope that the financial crisis eases and that businesses can fight through with their current staff and come out on top when things get back to their "norm" .
I also hope that any women waiting for surgery get it and those that are post op recover quickly with no complications.
Finally, I hope to spend another year with my family at friends close at hand as well as posting on sites such as this to provide support for people in the same situation as myself. Thus giving them a place to ask questions and obtain answers.
