It is the day after the End of the World, and we are all still here. Here on this cold but yet beautiful Saturday, December 22, 2012. I am sitting at home thinking once again on how fast this year has gone by. Today is a new beginning for many, because of all the hype leading up to the End of the World. So what will we do now, what will we do differently, anything? I think not. Just as we try to make New Years resolutions, which never come to affluence anyway, we set our minds to try. I guess trying is better than doing nothing at all. So with that being said, today and on New Years day I will TRY to do things differently. I will try to workout 3 days a week, I will try to be patient with my kids, I will try to hug my kids more and tell them I love them every chance I get, I will try to call my family more, I will try to go to church every Sunday instead of sleeping in (occasionally), and most of all I will try to keep trying. On this first day of a New World, I will try to stay positive and reinforce myself that GOD IS in control and will provide for me and all always.
I will try to not take each day for granted, because each day is precious. With the haunting images of the past week of precious lives lost, I will be more aware of the everyday nuances, of the little things that go unnoticed. This is my hope, I will try on my good days and my bad. My kids are my life and it’s because of them I even try at all. Of course I have my ambitions and goals to reach, but without them I honestly have nothing. My heart goes out to Newtown CT. I can’t even imagine what they are going through and I hope that time will ease their pain but I know that it will never go away.
On a good note, I went to Church Street Pub last night and met up with some friends. As the night was winding down, there was apparently a wedding about to happen in the courtyard. So I took my trusty phone out to check out the ceremony. It was excruciatingly cold but the bride looked beautiful. Unfortunately my phone can only do so much in the dark so my photos did not turn out so well. But I did get one good one when the bride and groom came back into the pub for some warmth, good food, and defiantly good beer. I have no idea who they are but they were kind enough to let me take a picture of them. I wish them the best of luck, and a big congratulations.
It was a fun night as always. I love my town, the friends that I have and my life. Yes sometimes it’s hard and yes sometimes I feel alone, but I’m thankful to be here. It’s not everyday that someone can say that everything is as it should be right now, and right at this very moment. I’m wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here is to another year down and many, many more to come…….. 🙂
