I recognize that celebrity relationships should have no impact on me or my life.

*Should* is the key word in that sentence.

Just can’t ever get enough of this song…

Downton Abbey:

December 29, 2011

I watched the entire first season of this show in an embarrassingly short period of time. Thanks book club, for the tip. This show may or may not be the excuse as to why I do not ready this month’s book.

 

Every day is a new day.

We made it through the holiday…

December 28, 2011

Which means that a new year is on the horizon…

2011 was NOT the worst. In fact, it was a year that made me think a lot… made me realize that things can change at the drop of the hat, that there are people in this world that love me more than I ever could have dreamed, that paths can and will change. Fast. And often. If you told me a year ago even a smidgen of what would occur in 2011, I would never have believed you.

I guess that would be why we don’t get a sneak peak to each year… which I guess I am okay with. There are some things that there is no way to prepare for, no way to plan.

I do know one thing. While there is no way to plan or prepare, there is something we can do. We can be thankful for each and every day, and especially each and every person that gets us through each day. Whether it is a friend, a lover, a co-worker, a stranger… We all have moments, and none of us do it alone.

I know that I am a strong person. I have know this for a very long time. While many might take the past year that I have had as a glimpse of an example of strength, I challenge that thought. Dealing with loved one’s illnesses, both visible and invisible, does take strength… but more than anything it takes love. This has been the year of learning about love, and realizing that sometimes it is not easy…

Sometimes, though, love means we get to experience miracles.

To the people in my life who shared their love with me; I thank you.
