And so the fireworks of two nights ago rang in another New Year. It was out of some weird "obligation" I felt compelled to sit there waiting for the clock to tick over with a glass of bubbly in my hand. Truthfully I could've very easily been fast asleep in bed. When did I get this old?!?!?
It gave me a chance to ponder though, as I do every New Year's Eve. I pondered on the year that's just been and how my boys have grown up so much (and yet some days I still crazily find myself wishing their lives away); how unfair natural disasters are (and how did we get fortunate enough to not be affected by any of them); that I've been utterly blessed to have met so many wonderful customers over the last 12 months (many whom have opened their hearts and shared their beautiful (but devastating) stories with me and by no means least, I sat and thought of my little angel boy, my tiny son Jayden, who should have been starting school this year. And I wonder where I would be right now had he lived....
Another thought for another day.
Wishing each and everyone of you a safe and peaceful 2011. Always remember, your journey will take you to wherever it is that you need to be.
