ABC Wednesday - X and Y

This week's letter at ABC Wednesday is Y, but I am including last weeks's letter, X, as well.

X is for eXcitement and eXciting.

Last Sunday (Dec. 27)we were able to see the Olympic Torch runners run just 5 minutes from our home! It was eXciting! I can't believe how choked up I felt when I saw the torch being lit and the first runner (a grandmother!) begin her run up Cedar Street. It was emotional for a lot of people.

The next day we were at a birthday party at a restaurant and another Olympic runner came in, with her torch, after having returned from her run in northern Ontario. She graciously allowed whoever wanted to hold the torch and get a picture with her. I did - but still do not have the picture as I had not brought my camera!!!

What a moment that was. Truly eXciting!

The torch will soon be in Vancouver (Feb. 12) and the Olympics will begin! Can't wait!

Y is for Year - it is a brand new year - 2010!

Happy New Year everyone!

Y also is for YES - my word of intention for 2010!

Be sure to visit the other great participants here.
