2014 Trickles away – A bitter-sweet year!

As the final few days of 2014 trickle away I think about all that happened. It was a bitter-sweet year with a weird beginning. My basement seemed cursed. Burst pipes, fires, but I handled it, and moved on.

Most of the year was filled with planning a beautiful wedding, and it was beautiful!

A weddingSeeing my lovely daughter so happy was a pleasure. Gaining a son-in-law was an added bonus. Getting together with family and friends I hadn’t seen in a long time was the icing on the cake. June and July were special months and I will always remember them with a smile.

The rest of the year passed in a blur. I had an extremely busy job which made my brain hurt so much I would escape for long walks during my lunch hour to prepare me for the afternoon. I guess I don’t have to worry about that anymore. After sixteen years of loyal service, covering several positions because of previous layoffs, I was a casualty of another downsize and cast aside without a second thought. I guess it happens. Yes my feelings were hurt, but I learned from it and I’m sure it will make me stronger.

As 2015 approaches I think of what it has in store for me. A vacation in Italy (providing I find a new job) and challenges I’m sure I’ll overcome.

There will be more tears and laughter, joy and sadness, all of the things that make up life. You can’t control life, but you can control the way you handle it.

Heres wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
