As this year comes to a close a few thoughts come to mind.

I am grateful for the wonderful friend, lover and so much more that I had in Cindy. We had such an incredible life together. A life that was full of amazing adventures. We were kind to each other, supportive of each other and always put the family first. We laughed together and we were always easily amused. I still hear her laugh and I still see her smile. Just like any other marriage, there were some ups and downs but we were always friends. We were always fiercely loyal and protective of each other.

I am grateful for my two wonderful children. Thank you for being such an incredible mother to them honey.

I am grateful for the kindness of some of my new friends. I hope that this will continue and expand.

I can’t predict the future. That was made so very obvious to me 18 months ago. I continue to trust in the future and trust that it will be good, no matter what it might be.

I am grateful for this community and for the fact that we can share and learn together. Listen to each other. Care for each other.

I hope that 2014 will be a good year for me, for my two children and for all of you.

Well said Mac. We can't predict the future. We all chose how we write the next chapter or chapters in our life. I am thankful for this site and the many wonderful people here. I hope that 2014 is a good year for you, your two children and for all of us here. We can move forward or we can stand in one place.

Change is inevitable.  Growth is  Optional.  I hope we all grow and we move forward into a New Year with new beginnings, fresh starts, and welcome the future with open arms and smiles.
