Just a moment to say what I would have said on Monday if I hadn’t had a daughter in the hospital.
This new year?
I have so many hopes for what’s to come.
Last year was so hard.
We started the year off losing our sweet and amazing Debbie and ended the year losing hilarious and wonderful Rick. Before and after those terrible days, more people we loved left this earth life and moved on. It’s been a long, hard time.
Today, though, I’ve been thinking how I’ve already fallen behind with my goals.
But each day is new, right?
Each day I can stretch and reach and hope.
That’s how I hope to treat each moment in this joyous new year.
Ann Dee, Kyra and I hope you have a perfect 2017. Sure, there’s going to be hard times. But there’s going to be a new moment, a new chance, and always we’ll have the opportunity to write for the love of words and kids and ourselves.
