2011 was a life-changing year for me and several people I love. The highs of this year were exceptionally high while the lows were devastatingly low. As the year closes I find that I hold my children a little tighter than I did twelve months ago, I celebrate a little more enthusiastically when someone has good news to share.
I find I’m not so much sad as tired that another year has ended. I aged this year, and while I don’t really like that, I know that it was necessary. I’ve grown this year and I guess that’s all you can really hope for when looking back on a year of experiences.
So good-bye 2011. I hope that what you’ve taught me will be useful in 2012:)
