A Very Nice Year

Sitting here, in this moment, warm in my bed, looking out at the snow, all I can remember of 2010 is good things. I know the world had plenty of troubles, and I had a few too I guess, but I'm choosing to see only what I want more of in the coming year, and there was plenty of that. My long search for Home led me right back to where I started, but nothing is the same. Or maybe it's only me who's different, but that's enough. Change one thing, change everything, and so everything is changed. It's a nice feeling, this moment of contentment. I know it won't last, and I also see that as a good thing, as discontent is what spurs us to imagine and create. But for the moment, it's perfect to pause quietly on the last frozen morning of the year, and take a deep breath, and say, Thank You. This year has been one hell of a ride.

And now, drum roll please...

  1. Holy crow! Really? I am so excited! Thank you!

    Life is quite the journey and I suppose contentment is where we find it. This coming from a Texas girl who refuses to allow Michigan in lol.

    Be blessed this coming year and be safe tonight!
