Here's to another year over and a better one on its way

"All good things come to an end," is the tenet I choose to summarize this past year. As with most years, there were plenty of horrific things that happened in our world but none that actually filtered down to effect me or my loved ones. Certainly not my best year but still I achieved a few goals I'd set last New Years and that is something I seldom say about resolutions. If you add in the intrinsic fact that at my age any year you survive is not only a good one but also a great one I'd have to say I'm going to miss ol' 2012.

It is getting harder for me acknowledge how fast the years are flying by, as years turn into decades in what appears to be a blink of the eye. Our babies grow up to have babies of their own and we parents turn into grandparents. I know this is meant to be but how can it be happening so fast? So let us accept the fact that last year was a good year and as its end is near, we can look forward to next year with anticipation and hope.
