Well, here we are in 2013 and my second year of college is rapidly approaching.
I can’t complain about last year at all. Yep, I was sick a bunch and that was truly miserable, but I also have much to be grateful for: I acquired a sweet new grandson in February. I finished my novella. Achieved a 4.0 for my first ever semester in college (and my second) ! Got better at fishing. Made new friends. Met some great teachers. After 18 months of unemployment, hubby found a great job. My niece and nephew both had healthy, beautiful baby boys. My wonderful, funny aunt moved back to Arizona after being gone for over 20 years in another state. My sisters and brothers have stayed relatively healthy for our advanced ages. 🙂 My family back east survived Superstorm Sandy with relatively little damage. The Mayans were wrong. The politicians have stopped advertising. I think the Mayans may have had something to do with that! 😉 In this last year, my five grandkids have brought me more joy than I can describe here. My house is still standing, despite an occassional sighting of a termite or two. My friends are all fairly happy and content. My plate is more than half full: it’s almost overflowing! Could I be richer, thinner, taller, smarter or blonder? Sure! But I’m in a good place and very aware of how blessed I am!
So in the coming year, I hope to keep my grades perfect, spend more time with my grandkids, accomplish most of the things on my To-Do list (that never-ending thing we ALL have!), fish whenever I can and stop to smell the roses every chance I get (hopefully my own- if this cold doesn’t kill them)!
Happy New Year friends and family! God bless us one and all!
