Now he's made it to the third round of the Australian Open having defeated Xavier Malisse of Belgium on Wednesday. Ranked 9th in the world today, he'll face Frenchman Fabrice Santoro in the next round.
But I digress; here he is, with me, at the charity tennis event!
Looking at the photograph, you might think I was a little more excited about getting my picture taken with him than he was about getting his picture taken with me. But the camera, you see, just caught him at the wrong moment.
This is how he actually looked when he first saw me walk into the room...
Well... not really.
I pulled the second photograph off the Australian Open Web site.
But a girl can pretend, can't she?

Here's what my Wednesday looked like:
Lack of sleep
Rush to work
Word of year
about new things
to what tomorrow brings
Sleep comes later
Since that's a little cryptic... Today in advisement, we were to have our students complete a sheet about their resolutions for the year. Well, now that I'm on to a word for the year, I couldn't resist sharing that idea with them. So, after they had completed their resolutions chart, I told them about choosing a word and shared mine with them (faith and joy). I pulled up Caroline's post at The Zen in You about words and read over the list with them. I was thrilled to see how serious they took this. Several decided on the word "courage." Others chose "health." One chose "improvement." I can't think of them all now, but it was very encouraging to see them give this some thought. Although I must say they made their decision MUCH quicker than I did!

It seemed that no matter what path my brain took, I kept going back to the word "faith." My problem with faith is that I have faith in God, but I don't internalize what that word really means. Instead, I worry... about everything! If I truly have faith, I must leave everything in God's hands. Then, there will be no reason to worry! So, my decision was made. My word for 2009 will be "faith."
I couldn't stick with just one word. I figure that "faith" will free up some space in my life, which in turn will allow me to embrace more completely the "joy" in my life.
