The passing of another year….

33 years ago today my eldest daughter was born – it is hard to believe that so many years have passed since that day when my life took on a whole new meaning. What a journey it has been, and one that I would take again in a heartbeat!

Happy Birthday Teriena, I hope you have a wonderful day!

All is quiet on the home front, with all of us enjoying the quiet and calm the last few days have had to offer as we wait for the days yet to come.

I cannot say that I am sad to see this year coming to an end. It has been a rough year for us as a family – one that many lessons were learned – not that lessons are a bad thing, but sometimes you just want to yell Stop – enough already.

I know in my heart that the year to come will also offer us many lessons – many changes –  some which we all look forward to, others that we wish we could put off for just a little bit longer – but know they will come, and that we will deal with them as we have done with all the ones of the past. Ready or not, Like it or not – life happens, changes happen, and we take the moments of each and try to make sense of them the best we can.


There are still a few days of this year left, so I am going to try to make the most of each one of them. Not letting the troubles of the months past take away from the days to come. I plan to close the chapter of this year gently!

  1. Sounds like a plan to me! I like it when things shut gently. Keep us up to date on what is happening with the baby.

  2. Happy end of 2007, Truddle. I hope the last few days are good to you, and that 2008 brings you some easier times.

  3. […] Truddle is showing off a beautiful almost-beginning as well as briefly reflecting on the past year. […]

  4. Happy birthday to Terri!!!!! miss you all there..

  5. I like this time of year, Truddle. The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over and we wait, helpless to delay or hasten the New Year.

    It’s a time for reflection that we should all partake in. Reflection on the past and on the future.

    Stay safe and warm. Enjoy what is left of the year.

  6. Enjoy today, and don’t borrow trouble from tomorrow. May you have a peaceful end of year and a joyous beginning.

  7. The stump is an interesting choice for this post.
    My family has had a stressful family time for the Christmas season. Cancer taking it’s toll. A long slow decline and the lingering. It could have been a Christmas death but may be New Years now. Life never seems so strong as when the struggle to die is life’s new purpose. Let’s vow to intensify the living we can still experience. I’m gonna start with some black eyed peas and collard greens.
