2014 was a year that started with so much baggage from 2013. Slowly, but surely, I have emerged from the grey clouds and found new sources of joy. My progress continues.
Lucho, my sweet pitbull puppy boy entered my life after Hubby’s motorcycle accident, this Summer. He reminded us of what unconditional love was, and taught all of us – including the other three dogs – patience. Lots of patience.
A few new people also entered my life and enriched it immensely. They became special friends and I cherished the time we have spent together. I met several of my favorite authors who were even more beautiful and snarky in real life. I look forward to reading their new books and meeting more authors, readers and book reviewers.
Surprisingly, I did not missed those people who chose not to be in my life. They were merely temporary acquaintances, who taught me more about myself and why I valued honesty and personal responsibility in the people I befriended.
My sincerest hope for you tonight, or whenever the clock strikes midnight in your corner of the world, is to send 2014 off well and welcome 2015 with open arms. Happy Year of the Goat/Sheep, everyone!
