Out with the old….In with the new…..beginnings

Today is the last day of 2013……WOW! it was a whirlwind of a year with ups and downs at every turn; I am surprised I am not crazy….subject to interpretation I am sure.

I went to my sisters house and had a little get together, a reunion of sorts since the family has not been together for a number of years since dad died.

It was a good time seeing everyone and had good eats too!

As always, it is good to look back at the last year to see how it went and to plan for your goals you want to achieve for the upcoming year.

Below is a snapshot of my family’s year and within it, it helps us formulate plans for 2014……

I am just glad we made it through another year and we are actually really looking forward to next year (tomorrow)…..my daughter is turning 18 and graduating high school, I am retiring and the big stressor of all …..we are moving again.

Of course there are good stressors in our life and bad stressors….it is all good for next year! Keep your fingers, toes and eyeballs crossed!

But the biggest thing I think is to not take ourselves too seriously, regardless of the circumstances. That’s all they are, temporary circumstances and they always seem to find a way to work themselves out.
