One more new calendar is about to be hung to remind me that, no matter what life throws my way, time still marches on.
2013… I’ve gotta say I won’t miss you. Not at all.
You started out one bitch of a year… And you ended the same way.
Yes, there were some highlights….
But those highlights… Well, they seemed to drown in the sea of pain and anguish that you delivered to my door.
I won’t miss you. Not one bit.
Jeff said to me the other day: “This year really has been a life changer”.
I’ll second that.
So many people I know felt like they were drowning in nothing but badness this year… Struggling just to keep their heads above water, to see even one glimmer of sunlight, of hope, of sanity…
So many people I know just felt like they were spinning their wheels and getting no where this year.
But it was a life changer….
So much in my life altered and changed:
A move to a new house…
Wee starting school…
Battles with and flair-ups of my PTSD….
The list goes on.
And then there’s the good stuff… The moments that I’ll never forget… The ones that made this year tolerable at best… Made it so that I could honestly say yes, there is a chance that things might turn around and this year might not completely suck:
Wee growing and changing and becoming her own person….
Stability at work…
The finalizing of my separation and divorce….
And Jeff and his children.
Despite all of the bumps in the road that we have travelled so far; Jeff and his children, they are one of the bigger highlights in my life…. I truly feel so lucky to have him in my life. I truly feel so fortunate to have him sharing his life with me… Building a new life with me….
Despite it all, things are settling nicely… And we’re becoming more and more of a great fit for each other than even I ever imagined possible….
But, despite that list of highlights in 2013, I can’t wait to usher this year out and get 2014 off to a great start.
Yes Jeff, you’re right; it’s gonna be great.
