fireplace    The warmth of a Christmas fire comforted me on Christmas Eve.  A glass of wine and my husband of 42 years, I had everything in life I could want.  My children have good lives and a dinner invitation for the next day meant I didn’t have much to cook.

It’s been a wonderful year.  When 2014 began I wanted to put my life back in balance, mentally, spiritually and physically.  Like most New Year’s resolutions, not all of that worked out.  But I have accomplished several things.  By January 2015 I will have three books in publication – a major milestone for me.  I’ve investigated the lack of balance in my soul and set at least a portion of it back where it should be.  I know where I’m going.

I’ve met new friends at work this year and possibly made some lifelong friends.  A new career late in life is something I never imagined, but it happened.

I bought a new car with the hopes of doing some traveling in the upcoming year and have several trips in mind.

I feel I balanced my life even though I still fall over sometimes.  I consider the change a win.  I look forward to 2015.

And by the way, the Amaryllis made it! That’s got to be a good sign.  amaryllis 2    Here’s to a new outlook in 2015.
