Aww, the ending of 2012 is drawing near and all I can say is it’s about time.
The year started out with a promotion and ended with another promotion. But the in between months, lets just say they could have been skipped.
From June through December, we buried fifteen relatives.
Wait, take a step back…the month of July held a wedding, not a funeral.
Ok, back to the path…the end of October held a reunion for my siblings and I. It was a great reprieve from the funerals we were dealing with.
A week in the Ozarks (Petite Jean State Park in Arkansas) was exactly what the doctor ordered. We hadn’t seen each other in two years and had been looking forward to spending some quality time with the whole family. It was a great few days of being silly, hiking, and enjoying each others company.
However, that was also the week Superstorm Sandy decided to hit the Jersey shore. Though the storm was thousands of miles away from where we stood, it was exactly where our family lived. Thankfully they are all alright. Some lost their homes, most lost their vehicles. They are all rebuilding or renovating their homes now and slowly things are returning to normal.
December brought this nasty illness about – we have shared it a few times and hopefully the current snow storm will snap it out once and for all.
Do I need to mention the world didn’t end on 12.21.12? Do I need to say I’m thankful it didn’t end?
I would like to see my daughter finish phlebotomy classes and accept a job offer, not to mention see the boys graduate high school, maybe even get married…hmm things to think about.
This brings us to Christmas and the last week of 2012. Do I hear a small crowd cheering?
Christmas Eve found my three children and my daughters boyfriend dancing along to Just Dance and playing Mario Brothers, not at the same time, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried.
And the last Friday of the month brought about a promotion.
Now the year can end…
