Another year in the books. And a fresh new calendar lay clean before me.
I closed out the year soaking in time with stair-step grand-babies. In just a matter of months their ages will turn and they’ll be 1,2,3,4. Determined not to blink in an effort to not miss a single moment.
It was a white Christmas – full of beauty. We traveled the roads to be with family. The snow was deep and the branches were covered thick with pure white. Yet the sun shone bright and beautiful.
As the new year turns, fresh opportunity lays pure and thick, beautiful and bright.
A time to cast off fear that weighs me heavy with apathy. A time to embrace the beauty found in the hard. A time to surrender self and love instead. A time to laugh and find joy everyday. A time to be generous in word and in deed.
A time for compassion to move me to action. A time to put off that which easily besets. A time for kindness and mercy. A time to soak in grace.
As I fondly close the chapter of 2012 it is with eager anticipation I look forward to 2013.
May it be a year of sweetness and growth and love and compassion. For you, for me, and for all those who need to know fresh hope. May we see the opportunity that is spread wide before us.
