Monday, December 31

it's today. . .

No raucous fanfares to herald the new year,
no lists of achievements achieved
or opportunities missed,
just quiet contentment that another 365 days have passed
safely and softly.

We're no further forward
but we're no further back.
Dreams are still dreams
hopes stay hopeful
health is healthy
and you know what? that's enough for me.

Some years have been rollercoasters
some years have been tainted
but now. . .
I'm content with my lot,
lucky with my lot
and blessed beyond measure.

Thankyou all for your support
and comments and emails
and hugs.
For listening and laughing
and sharing snippets of your lives.

Wishing you everything you wish for yourselves in 2013

It is one of the few good things about getting older, this ability to be contented with your lot! I too know that feeling and am ever grateful for the love of family and good friends that help to make it so.
I wish you and yours a happy and healthy New Year....and can't wait for more posts to make me giggle in 2013.
