As I was trying to explain the concept of a new year to my almost two year old, I started to ponder what a new year means to me. It is kind of like meeting someone new. You don't know anything about them, but as the months pass you become ever more comfortable with them. Sometimes they turn out to be a good friend you remember forever, and sometimes they turn out to be someone that you try to learn from, but never see again. Some years are very memorable with lots of highs, and some are incredibly trying on us and memorable in a different way.
Although his past year flew by for me, it was a good year. I didn't get many of the things done that I wanted to, but that's ok. I achieved other things that I didn't expect to. Looking forward to getting to know this new year is exciting, and I can't wait to see what it holds for our family.
To all of you, I wish you a new year filled with whatever you hope it to be filled with. I have hopes that this year will be a healthy, active year for my family, with plenty of time together. Best new year wishes friends.
