The calendar may read December 29 but to me that means a new year. No, not 2013. It's the beginning of a new year for our family. On December 28, 2011 my father in law expectantly passed away. That was the beginning of a pretty cruddy six plus months. QUICK recap: my father in law and dad died; head on car crash; multiple concussions. The year finished much better than it started. QUICK recap: vacation to Montana; daughter driving; son accepted to first (and only) choice for college; family feeling better.
I don't tend to dwell in the negative but, truthfully, I have been looking forward to today to begin a fresh start. Bring on the new year.
