I have to say that 2012 was a busy year in our household and I look for 2013 to be a little less exciting. For those of you wondering, my son was able to make it home safely for Christmas and stayed with us just shy of a week. He’s back in Washington now to start looking for a place to live. He was fortunate to have the people he works with offer him shelter, but he doesn’t want to overstay his welcome.
So I look forward to what new and interesting things he will find in a new place to live and continuing with his first year teaching. Both my husband and I are fortunate to have our jobs. My sister and others have not been so lucky with the continuing problems with the economy. And the most incredible thing, but I daresay something that makes me feel old, is that my daughter will be graduating in May from college.
This past year, I had friends welcome babies into their lives, and I’ve told them the old clichés about enjoying every moment of their children's’ lives because they will be grown before they know it. And I have to say that it does just seem like yesterday they were speeding along on their Hot Wheels and spinning out just to show they could.
Have a great New Year and enjoy each new day and every opportunity it provides.
