I’ve been thinking a lot about this year ending. I feel as though I’ve ended the last couple of years saying something like, “Wow. This was the worst year ever.” It might be time to flip the script on that observation.
Let’s just get this out of the way; 2016 was godawful for my little family and me. (Bear with me, script flipping will commence.) We faced injuries, illness, (all 3 of us had MRIs this year. What are the odds?) death of a beloved pet, friendships and friends turning out to be not what we thought, work changes, and then the election. There’s much more I could list here, but it’s all in the past. This little family of three weathered everything 2016 could throw at us and forged on and we’ll do it again in the coming year.
We learned some hard lessons this year but we will carry that knowledge forward and face 2017 head on. A little bruised, but not too much worse for the wear.
Happy New Year, people. Hang tough and hang on to each other.
