This is going to be a wonderful year!
Some friends have left the room, relatives, too, but I'm still here and getting better.
Thomas, Aunt Margaret- you will always be with me.
I have recently stopped watching programs called Infotainment or Reality. I can make my own drama. No more following news stories all night that are not local or don't affect me.
(Anderson Cooper Ridiculist and Joel McHale on the Soup don't count).
This is the year my children will blossom into their own. I can feel it. They are poised to experience all life has to offer: success, achievement, and love!
I am so fortunate to have faithful friends and fun things to do, to write, to walk, to enjoy these years as I approach "mature".
Actually, I am finally comfortable with being a grown-up, though a misplaced harsh word can send me into a little girl terror in an instant, so please be thoughtful with your words.
Live long and prosper! My wish for most of us!
