Happy New Year
Last year, one of my dearest friends asked me what my goals for 2011 were. I answered, flippantly, "To survive it." I had no idea what was in store for the year, and how hard it would be to attain even that silly goal. This was a tough year, and I am very happy to see it in my rearview mirror. I lost a couple of friends, made some new friends, had some hard times and some happy times. I've done a lot of knitting, a lot of grieving, a lot of laughing, and a lot of thinking. I would not want to repeat the year, but I'm glad I lived it.
I have a lot to look forward to in 2012. I have a trip to Germany coming up very soon, a lot of hugs coming from the grandkids, a great many days of sunshine and laughter on their way.
I have a closetful of yarn and a headful of know-how, and will knit many more things in the months to come.
You all have a wonderful year. My dear friends and family, you are indispensable to me. Thank you for another chance to enjoy your contribution to my life, and for letting me be a part of yours.
Happy new year!
