It Was Awesome!

Not only has Christmas 2012 come and gone but we are on the cusp of bidding farewell to the whole dang year.  I'm not sure but I think something physiological happens when one reaches a certain age - in which the way we perceive the movement of time is not at all as it was during childhood.  When I was younger school years seemed to take forever, summers crawled by like a slug, and the words slow as Christmas could be a very appropriate simile.  Not so anymore.  It's odd really...the slower I become, the faster time travels.

2012 was a good year for my family.  We are all still together and there have been no major health issues.  And even though I was complaining earlier this evening about the incredibly boring life I must lead to be spending NYE in places like Wal-Mart, Home Goods and Kohls with little in the way of celebration awaiting me (except for that bottle of Welch's Sparkling Red Grape juice cocktail in the refrigerator), I feel blessed because I know many families have not been so fortunate.

As John-Heath said, when asked about our Christmas, "It was awesome!"  I hope yours was, as well.  See you next year, my friends.

P.S.  If you're nearby and want to pop in to liven up our NYE, I have a bottle half a bottle of sparkling cider we could share.
