I'm interested to see what God has in store for good old year number 26 of my life. I must say its starting off well. I woke up this morning at 10:30 and we are going to go into Down Town Chicago in a little while for dinner and to see Wicked! Good times with the fam. Let's just hope we don't talk religion or politics tonight. Well here's hoping to a good 26 full of suprises and many blessings from above!
