....and put away.
There is always such a void for me when it's all gone every year. Hence the melancholy. As I have been puttering around this last week, I have had many opportunities to not only reflect on the last year, but also the past decade. There have been many, many changes in my life. There have been lessons learned, joys and disappointments, heartaches and happiness and so very much to be grateful for.
With that thought, I am looking forward to 2010. I believe that it will have much in store for all of us.
Be safe tonight as you bring in the New Year. (I will be a youth dance for our church--YAY me!!)
