It's a new year, and time for new resolutions
Happy New Year! Can you believe it's already 2012? With each new year, many of us out there make new resolutions. Some may argue that you don't need a certain day of the year to decide to make a change, but what better day than today? It's a fresh start right? We want to know what your resolution(s) is/are. Did you decide that it's time to join a gym? Maybe you want to try a new food? Or maybe you want to stay in contact with your family better? Whatever it is, we want to know, so please share with us in the comments section.

It was time to leave, but how could I?
Scanning the lush green horizon beyond the playground, I breathed in mountain air. How could a place captivate me like this? Or a people? In just one week? I considered my home. Our children are the fifth generation to live on our farm. We have family for neighbors, space to roam. Who gets to enjoy that kind of heritage? Ah. The children of the Dominican Republic. Maybe that’s why I fell in love. Families live simply: eating together, playing dominoes, talking. Most folks live all their lives in the village they were born in and have no desire to be elsewhere.
