On this, the final night of 2011, I've spent a couple hours going back thru blogs I've written at the end of each year as far back as December of 2007, which was just before John entered my life. (I didn't delve into my initial blog from the years prior to that, some memories are best kept boxed in the attic.) I am amazed at the transformation that has taken place in my life in four years time, far beyond anything I could have hoped for or imagined.
Once a dedicated daily blogger, I've lapsed into sporadic posts interspersed with months of silence. I've changed, what I choose to share has changed, and the blogging world itself has changed greatly, with Facebook luring many blogging friends away. Yet always, the words build up inside me, thoughts piling one upon another and clamoring to be written down. Writing has always been my therapy. Blogging and the true friends I've made here, have preserved my sanity or what remains of it, and it could well be said have saved my life.
We choose to see the New Year in quietly, at home after a nice dinner out, curled up together on the sofa with movies, snacks, and our five beloved furkids gathered around us. In another hour we will toast the new year with American Honey Wild Turkey - my new most favorite drink, and pray for peace in 2012... peace in our world, and peace in the hearts and lives of those we love.
May 2012 bring blessings, good health, and happy memories in the making to each of you who stop by to visit here. Hopefully, we'll be meeting on my blog more often in the year ahead!
