So, it’s the Eve of a new one. It is true…the older you get, the faster time flies. My head is full of nonsense and since this is my blog, allow me a moment to ramble…
I relish in my 40’s, not at all shy about my age, I wear it like a battle shield. I have earned every experience, every mistake, every joy and every reward. Damn….I.am.tired.
So, it’s the Eve, and I am filled with joy, happy and anxiety….are the carpet cleaners gonna be here on time? The lawn guy? And are the guests gonna show up?
New Year’s is about resolutions, to hope and to commitment. It’s about new starts after old stops. It’s about beginning.
Maybe this next year, I’ll get serious about a book. Writing is an escape for me, it’s a hobby….not sure what I would every write about, but then, I have been blogging for years and I have found words for this….but it’s free, would anyone pay to read what I have to say?
I will see this year out with a few of my dearest and my closest. Me and the wife, Morgen and the wife….we are hosting and bringing in the New Year with friends full of love and laughter. I can’t wait!
New Year will bring yet another trip to Graceland. This time with the wife, Ursula and her hubs. As written to me in a text “I’m feeling pretty damn lucky today that we are both in a place that we can be like “Let’s meet at Graceland!” and it’s not just a big pipe dream…” Amen to that Urs….I am so proud of the both of us, who ever thought, back in the day, sitting in your room, that we would ever dream to do such a thing. I love you my friend!
Christmas was filled with such love, for the first time, EVER, I got to wake up with my bestie, my Kenner in the house. This chick is my strength and my rock. I no longer wonder where I stand, I know it’s back-to-back with this one and we are forever friends…I will even watch her favorite movie with her…again and again…cause that’s what friends do! This chick is the goods and I love her dearly.
My kids, my family…they fill me up with love. The daughter said it was her best Christmas ever…which brought tears to many an eye, simply because you want to give them their heart’s content and when you do, you feel accomplished. The Boy, hasn’t begun to speak yet, still so busy with his new games and new phone, I am assuming it’s his best yet too!
My wife, my love in life….words don’t express the depth of my feelings for this lady. She is the other half to me and I treasure each and every moment in time. She makes my everyday Christmas and I am the luckiest person breathing because she chose me. She chose me first, last and every moment in between. She loves me like no other and that gives me a sense of peace and centeredness that is impossible to explain.
I look forward to 2012. 2011 rocked, flew by, but was amazing….I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Happy New Year WorldWideWeb family….Happy New Year!
Be safe, be kind, love out loud!
