Then of course, there was my "Where is Peter Thomas?" moment. OK, let me bring some clarity to that situation, before I officially close out 2011. Peter Thomas was the one that spent most of his day setting up everything up for The Bailey Agency opening. He made sure that everything was beautiful and perfect. I was happy that he took the time to help me out, because managing Bar One is a full-time job. Between bouncing back and forth between The Bailey Agency and Bar One, he was exhausted. At one point he stepped out to check on something at Bar One and was MIA during my thank you speech. Of course, when he returned the speech was over and the rest is history. My only issue with Peter was that he should have communicated to me that he had to step out and would be right back. Communication is key! It eliminates the unnecessary drama and senseless confusion. I was so busy entertaining my guests that I honestly did not notice that he had left. Had I been informed, I would have waited for him to get back. Or I could have at least expressed to everyone that he had to step away for a moment. No drama, end of story. This was my big day, and Peter was very excited for me. He is my number one supporter. Moving on.
Happy New Year! I bid reflectively farewell to 2011, and warmly embrace 2012 with open arms! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to bless others because I am so blessed. I have more resolutions, but this one means the most to me. I thank God for allowing me to live to see a new year. I have so much to be thankful for, and I take nothing for granted. This includes life itself. God give me the strength and courage to be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and human being. I welcome life's challenges and will do my best to rise to the occasion every time. I declare 2012 to be a year for greatness, prosperity, and love for all! Let's make it the best one yet!
