It is New Year's! Being me, I may have a different
way of marking the season than you. I am not embarrassed to tell you that my
idea of celebrating the New Year is to spend time flipping through old photo albums and back pages of journals. I am reminded what I have been up to.
This year, maybe more than others, I am increasingly aware of how much I have benefitted from those near and dear to me. I am really grateful. Dear friends and family, thank you for words of encouragement, words of joy and outrageous times of fun during 2013! My life is altogether better because of you!
In the past year I have learned the exhilaration of hiking through glorious desert, the wonder of playing with goose feathers on a beach, the delight of contemplating the existence of wood faeries and the adventure of digging deeply into a sandbox. I am also learning to trust myself more. Maybe I am learning to live deeply and richly!
I never want to forget all that I am grateful for. And today, I am deeply and wonderfully grateful for you! :) Hap, Hap, Happy New Year! :)
