While the rest of the world celebrates New Year's Eve, my husband and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary. This year is definitely more special, as our gift to each other is my life.
So today represents the end of a difficult year, but a year that has been full of blessings.
It represents a deep love of husband and wife. We are still as mushy, romantic as ever .... he still opens the car door for me.
And, the fact that I'm a cancer survivor. I am still wrapping my brain around that one. The anvil is still over my head and it will probably take time for that feeling to subside.
I don't think that my life will now be a bed of roses, but I sure have learned a lot about myself and the people that are in my circle. Most of all, I have learned so much about what faith really means in our broken world.
Last year, I had made a new year's resolution of de-cluttering. Thanks to my daughter and husband, they were key in making this happen. Now, it seems that I want a more substantial proclamation. I have been praying about it and I'm close to putting it into words.
Until then, my friends, may this day be safe, happy, fun, light-hearted, loving, inspired, and may you find many blessings in the new year to come!
