I can’t believe how fast December is flying past! In fact the whole year is a blur of mostly good things mixed in with a few thrills and chills. If this year had a theme it was saying good-bye to the old guard and planting seeds for tomorrow.
I am not shopping in a mall this year. Instead I’m cooking favorite recipes for my loved ones, sharing outings, movies at home and more time together. That’s the best way I can think of to bring a beautiful but challenging year to a close. I'm also racing to finish and submit a book to my new publisher by New Year's Eve. This will be the fourth year in a row I've done this. Submitting a new book at midnight has become my new annual year-end tradition.
I'm also waiting for a dear Aunt to pass. She's in hospice care and I'm expecting her to go to her big coming party very soon. This will be be the forth family member lost year and I hope the last for a very long while.
