new year brings a time of self reflection. As a kitten looking
into the mirror I hope that I am seeing the lion inside of me.
This past year has been an incredible experience for me. I went from
having a full house to the "empty nest" and learning to enjoy my own
company again. When you are a full time caregiver you tend to put your
own needs aside and forget your own dreams and hopes. Having the time
to discover myself again was a gift.
This year I found a community of new friends. Friends that stretch
across miles that I would never have been able to meet if it weren’t
for Spaces. Each one of you touched my heart and in some way, you were there
when I needed a friend. I only hope that the community grows as there

This year I was able to travel, not much, but more than ever before. I
saw familiar sites as I returned to my hometown and fell in love with
it again. I vacationed on the beach with friends. I saw the Atlantic waves crash on the shore. I saw new places and traveled roads that I have never
traveled. My trips were gifts that expanded my horizon.
this new year begins I look forward to the new gifts in my life. I hope
for good health, love and romance, and all the new experiences that
will come my way. I hope for change.
So when I look into that mirror today I see a person that is much
stronger than a year ago. I see a person that looks forward to every
day a each day as- Life begins again. I’m happy to say that when I look in that mirror I do in fact see a lion.
My best to you all this New Year!
