The end of the year, end of the decade is a time of reflection. There are hundreds of best of and worst of lists.

Thinking about all this I remembered the first time I heard Susan Boyle sing. I revisited her appearance again this morning. All these months later she inspired me yet again.

I hope that Miss Boyle has caring people to protect her as she proceeds with her career.

I hope that my daughters continue to dream their dreams on the path to their own personal successes.
