This will be sort of short & sweet.
As y’all know, I have been laying very low since before Thanksgiving. That will be changing soon. 🙂
I did want to throw this post out there on the last day of this year that we are all saying goodbye to. Among other things.
I, after re-writing this several times, would just like to say that I am thankful. I truly have nothing to complain about in the grande scheme of things.
On the top of my list of things I am most grateful for is my son. I am so incredibly proud of him. He is alive & well & thriving in his life. And he is proud of himself. That could make me stop & do the ugly cry right here. He is my miracle.
I am also closing out this year in anticipation & excitement over finally moving into my own place again, after being a roommate for the last 3 years. I have been very thankful for that time & am especially thankful to the 2 people who allowed me & Otis into their homes to live with them. And also to the special person who let me stay in her beautiful apartment alone when I first struck out on my own – I am forever grateful for that time. It was just what I needed.
It is time to move on. And at almost 45, I’d say the timing is pretty dang good. Phew.
I am sure many a blog will be inspired & written from the couch in my new place. Snuggled under my favorite blanket, with my lil brown buddy Otis alongside, for hopefully as many, many more days as he can stay with me. A furry little warm slice of companionship all these years – he is 16 (that’s 112 in people years) & his health is failing. Thank God for good vets & meds.
And thank you God for taking care of me – for providing & never once leaving my side. I don’t deserve what You give me – and you are the very, very best Father a girl could ever ask for. I am sorry for the grumbling & complaining I did this year. And the pity parties I threw.
I have it too good to have ever thrown the first one.
Much love y’all & big hope & gratitude in advance for all that 2015 holds –
Happy New Year!!
