As my career as a daily blogger ends, I’ve looked back over the year and pulled out my favorite posts, the ones that meant the most to me, or that I had the most fun writing. I hope you’ll enjoy reading (or rereading) these. It’s been a privilege to share my thoughts with you.
Victoria’s Victorious Bailout Plan, Feb. 2, 2009 — Practical, spiritual suggestions for thriving in tough times.

Angels Unawares, Feb. 4, 2009 — The story of the taxi driver I rode with in Florida. We should have had nothing in common, but we ended up hugging at the entrance to the airport.

Top 10 Bible Passages for the Holistically Inclined, March 31, 2009 — An assortment of good stuff from the Good Book.
Aspen’s Obituary, June 28, 2009 — You guys were such a comfort when our amazing 15-year-old dog, Aspen, passed away early this summer.
Every Little Life, July 30, 2009 — This could conceivably be the only blog post ever written about a crayfish.
Prosperity — And Living a Charmed Life, August 28, 2009 — This was a response to several negative comments I’d received about being “rich” and “out of touch”. Some people wrote afterwards and said that I shouldn’t have to defend my life, but I found it so fascinating that, not actually being rich, my life looks that way to people. I figured it was a good thing.
National Punctuation Day, September 24, 2009 — I love the English language: words, turns of phrase, descriptions that paint pictures, even punctuation marks that make it all orderly and sensible. It was fun to write about punctuation and read comments from people who appreciate it as much as I do.
Paradise Health in My 50s, October 8, 2009 — A celebration of raw food and feeling amazing.
The Top 10 Things We Should All Be Hearing, November 10, 2009 — Ten statements that, if we heard them as children, saved us a lot of grief, and, hearing them now, will still do a great deal of good.
A Schedule to Consider, December 3, 2009 — Inspiration from the daily schedule kept by Thomas E. Powers when he wrote his classic of the spiritual life, Invitation to a Great Experiment.

Thanks to each and every one of you for being part of this adventure. Let’s stay in touch.

Thank you for sharing with us during the past year. I have so enjoyed reading your blog. It always added to my day and your words of wisdom were there for the taking and practicing. Sending you good thoughts for a new “best seller” and an especially charmed life.

I am very sad that I won’t have this blog to look forward to anymore but I am looking forward to reading your new book (and re-reading the older ones). Thank you so much for all your writings – it has made a difference to the way that I view and live my life.
