So, this year.
And you know, tomorrow is just the next day really.
And I wonder why we put so much emphasis on a particular date?
Maybe we all need new beginnings.
Or do we all just need to draw a line under this year, and start again, fresh?
Is that what it is?
This last year has given me a lot.
It has also taken a lot from me.
It has given me YOU. (Yes, you lot in the sidebar, you know who you are!)
You have enriched my life so much, words defy me.
You have taught me, hugged me, laughed with me.
And cried with me.
But most of all, you have listened to me.
And you have encouraged me, egged me on.
In good times and bad.
So I thank you all.
And I love you all.
This year has also taken from me too many people I love.
And although you have never met any of them, you were there for me.
Please remember with me my family and friends who have passed,
Helen, my beloved Big Sister.
Bridie, my Auntie.
'Timber', my Uncle, (what a nickname!)
