The last day of the year has been rainy and cold. The snow and ice are melting quickly.
I have spent the majority of the day hunkered down, under covers, with books and Pinterest and a tinsy bit of writing. There also may have been a restless nap in the middle there.
I think the weight of 2012 found me today and laid me flat for a few hours.
Let's be honest. 2012 was not our best year.
A lot of great and wonderful things happened, yes.
But they were each faught for hard. I had to really keep my eyes peeled for the good and the bright. I had to go deep to dig that silver lining out more than once or twice (or twenty times) over.
It was not a walk in the park by any means, and I have no qualms about bidding it adieu.
So goodbye 2012. I tried to learn your lessons well. I will do my best to remember you with more smiles than tears. Please don't let the door hit you on the way out.
