2014 has dawned all shiny and new but we lurch headfirst into the new year, I want to take a few moments to reflect on 2013. She was not the kindest of years. We lost my grandfather, Mr. McB’s grandmother, and a few dear friends. This year had more than its fair share of heartbreak but there was also laughter and love. This year more than any other, I have come to realize that these are the things that sustain us in the hard times.
While I’m not really one for resolutions, I do intend to make 2014 memorable. I want to find the joy in the mundane and break up my routine a little, even if it threatens my comfort zone. I hope you all have a wonderful 2014 that is full of fun and challenging new experiences.
