I don't recall much about the earlier part of the year. Seems to have become a blur. Easter, school play, concerts, dance recital, it all seems to have blurred with memory.
As I sit here in my winter pj's and I hear the wind and see the snow blowing it's difficult to remember 90 degrees with severe humidity or Mr. Bettis and his morning ritual barking at the visiting squirrel. Oh! That's right, he is still on a morning ritual, barking at.........what? Nothing!
I know the heat will return and I'll have to rely on my imagination and memory of the cold and snow.
School began and it filled our days with activities. We loved every minute of it and I really can't write any more or the tears will flow. The pictures say it all for me. Memories.
2008 has had it's up and downs as every year. While I say I could do without the downs, it is a part of life unless of course that includes the Saw Encounter this time, last year:). I could've done without that incident.
In the end it is my faith and family that holds me together. Next year holds it's own ups and downs, ready and waiting. I don't always embrace change in my life so it could get interesting:).
There's a wedding and two graduations to anticipate and I'm looking forward those events.
I'm not a fan of the New Year festivities.
To all my friends, I send a big thank you hug. We've laughed and we've shed a tear or two along the way. Thank you all so much!
I say adieu to 2008 and I'll hold reserved judgement for 2009.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
p.s. I just recieved a phone call from my mother and she has my dad in the hospital now. And so 2008 ends and 2009 will begin...................
