“… Tonight’s the night the world begins again.” — Goo Goo Dolls, Better Days
The last day of December. The last day of 2017.
I do love a clean slate.
My last wish is hope — because I’m trying to hold onto that. With both hands. Even though I’m not a naturally hopeful person.
I’m hoping 2018 is a great year. That I can take the gifts and the lessons of 2017 and apply them accordingly. That I can continue to grow and learn, and find the good in people and the world.
Thank you, friends, for sharing this month with me. I’ve made a very basic Word doc of all of the wishes at the request of my mother, and if anyone feels the need for a copy, let me know in the comments and I’ll email it to you. My little gift for the end of the year.
I’m going to take a blogging break for the first couple of weeks in January. I want to spend as much time as I can with the fam while we’re still all under the same roof. We’ve got a few things planned, as well as the basic back-to-reality craziness that comes after the holiday season.
I’m almost looking forward to it.
Happy New Year!
