Hey guys! Well, we have been blessed enough to survive another year. Speaking for myself, 2013 was not the best of years. I lost my father, someone who is vitally important to me was just diagnosed with breast cancer, and there were just a lot of challenges and battles over the past 12 months that I am glad are over with. I hate to wish my life away, but this is one year I am happy to put behind me. I look forward to the next year and the opportunities it brings. As Meredith Grey put it, the next year 'is a chance to put the problems of last year to bed.' What a nice thought.
I have spent most of the day at the vet's office with Piper. She's having to have some tests done, but I am eternally optimistic where she is concerned. I'm spending the rest of the day here at home with her and the rest of the gang, with a heart full of love, hope, and promise for a wonderful 2014. New Years Eve to me is a time for reflection. Auld Lang Syne, for the sake of old times. Old acquaintances and friends will never be forgotten, and all my sweetest memories treasured. Today symbolizes endings and new beginnings.
