WE MADE IT!
It's been a wild and bumpy year with plenty of bad vibes and even worse experiences. Part of me just wants to curl under the covers with a book and go sleep early so I can wake up in 2021. Surely next year won't be this bad, right?
2020 has been awful. For lots of people. But there's been a lot of good too and tonight, as I kick this year out the door (with a steel-toed boot), I will try to focus on the positive.
My family is safe and mostly healthy,
I still have a roof over my head and food to eat,
I'm able to teach remotely from home to protect my health (for now)
My oldest son recently got engaged to the love of his life
My middle son graduated from college
My daughter is the last left in school (easier on the bank account!) and still testing negative
I turned fifty in October and haven't fallen apart (at least not completely)
Writing has brought me plenty of joy and sharing it with all of you makes me smile This year has aged us all in dog years and I'm glad I got to celebrate its demise, but I have a lot to look forward to in the future. And I'll get there. And so will you. No matter how you ring in 2021, be safe and remember to take a moment and find your positive. It's out there somewhere. Happy New Year! BB.
