The new year has snuck up on me and it is time for the annual news of the Anderson family. You may not know, but this is the very reason I started this web site. It began in 2000 as a way to use the web to begin to communicate Christmas greetings to our family and friends. It has since morphed into a tradition. A couple of years ago, I mentioned that I wasn’t going to do it anymore. I was informed in no uncertain terms that I had to do it.
As much as I chafe over doing something because I “have to”, I must admit that I do like it… especially creating the collage. The process of going through photos and remembering all that we have done over the last 12 months is cathartic. It is easy for someone like me to forget and begin to think that my life does not matter. Remembering and reflecting becomes more important to me all the time… or maybe it is just my awareness of its importance.
I hope you will take a few moments to read the 2009 Anderson Family News and take a look at the 2009 Collage. You can always view collages and news pages from previous years by clicking the Family News menu on the jimazing.com web site
