2011 going, going….
On this last day of 2011 I find that the anticipation of a new year is more daunting than exciting. I normally feel an exhilaration for new beginnings but this whole year has been weird. My anticipation and excitement has turned to uneasiness.
I am what I call an optimistic worry wart, oxymoron???? No really, I always believe that things will turn out for the better if only I keep my hands on the wheel….all the time. I always have this nagging little voice in my head telling me that it is better to have my DF (Dear Family) annoyed with me than not giving them advise on all things and later being sorry that I didn’t say something. I love being a ‘fixer’ and when I can’t fix everything, well…..I can get even more annoying!
I really need new glasses, something I have been putting off for a very long time. I think I will check out some that are rose-colored. You know, I am really doing a horrible job of relating the reasons I feel so unsettled and uneasy and I am sure anyone reading this is wondering why I think they should be interested anyway. I know that you can’t feel my headache and I can’t feel yours, so who is to say who has the worst headache!
So I am going to go find my happy face and leave you with this,
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Grace and Peace for me and you in 2012!
