How do you see yourself this coming year?
Every year I look at this picture and wonder… Am I the kitten or the lion? New Years is a time for reflection on the past as well as hopes for the future.
2008 is almost gone and for that, I am glad. This was not my year. 2009 doesn’t look much better as the future is very uncertain for me. Will I ever find a job I like again? Will the knee get better, need surgery or will I forever limp? Is there such thing as love? My lease will be up soon and although I love my apartment, should I move? Will lil dog ever eat the new treats or is he just going to carry them around? So many questions.
I will remember this past year for the kindness of friends and family. For this I am truly grateful. From my friend that stayed with me for a week to keep me from straining my knee to the neighbor that offers to carry my laundry up the stairs to the machines. My sister who has not only kept me financially afloat right now but is my best friend that helps keep my spirit afloat. My son who proves to me that he is a good man often self-sacrificing and always generous. And my lil dog that always can make me laugh and who is always willing to give a cuddle.
Then there is you. You come by here and read my posts, leave your comments and allow me into your life through your post. I have been a privileged to read about your holidays and celebrations, your good days and your bad days. I have enjoyed your pets and kids through the pictures you post. Some how I feel as if I am part of your life and important some way. It has been my pleasure to be your Friend here in Spaces.
Let’s toast the new year in with the heart and courage of the lion and purr with the contentness of the kitten.
I wish you all a healthy and prosperous new year.
