au revoir

As I write this post, I am sitting in my warm comfy pajamas with a steaming cup of coffee nearby for mid-morning clarity. I am happy to be indoors this morning on this cold winter day. I am grateful and happy for my family. We have been rather "busy making merry" (as Dickens would say) over the past week giving every effort to stretching out the holidays as long as possible. It has been especially nice to have my hubby home and off work for two weeks, I feel spoiled.

Tonight we will say goodbye to another year and welcome, with anticipation, a new one. I always feel excited heading into a new year. One never does know what wonderful things lie ahead and discovering them and participating as life unfolds new adventures is what I am looking forward to this upcoming year.

I'm not one for verbal resolutions as they always give me the impression that somehow the experiences of the past year are something of regret. Rather, I like to approach life as a journey. A journey which encompasses living in the now which is filled with moments of both peace and chaos. Really, how can one exist without the other?

Children seem to encompass this idea best for me. They are so full of life and innocently wear their hearts on their sleeve. They swing the pendulum from peace to the antithesis: chaos, and they do so without apology. Their innocence and fervor for every stage of life both exhilarates and challenges every facet of my being and for that I am grateful to be reminded that life is worth living in the moment. That each moment becomes a part of the journey and our journey is what brings meaning to our existence.

And so I leave you with a prayer and a wish for the new year, that both you and I will be able to see our world, our environment with the clarity of a child and while we participate in this journey of life; may we embrace all that each day has for us. Happy New Year and many blessings to you in 2008. xoxo
