The very last thing I said to you last year was, "2020 is going to be amazing...at least, that's what my ruminations tell me...as I sift through the pieces."
I'm SO very sorry as I do believe I jinxed us all somehow. I'll try to keep any hopeful aspirations to myself this year.
I also stumbled across this I was looking back to see what other kind of wisdom I had to share in the early days before the world came to a complete stop. Somebody remind me in about a week or so. I (we) CAN'T forget our thirtieth anniversary - even if we can't actually DO something to celebrate - other than celebrating the fact that, hopefully, these vaccinations will be rolled out quickly. I'm still in shock at how so very young we were.
This was also the year - prior to everything going to hell in a handbasket - that one of my plants spontaneously committed suicide.
After that, things got really weird as the world started locking down and although I still had stuff I rambled about, it became more "home" related - fixing minor annoyances, tiny miracles, small silver linings; and a problem solved.
We won't even go into the Hot Water Saga or the Oven Dilemma - I can't relieve those nightmares just yet. It's too soon.
So here we are - on the cusp of a New Year. I'm not going to make any grand proclamations - but will humbly say thank you for being along for the ride this crazy year. And let's stand together to face what 2021 will bring. Together, I think, we will make the best of it - much like we did this year. Like we do most years - good or bad.
As we head in to the new year, let's all look for the good. Even in the most crappy of all years, there is always something beautiful and something to be grateful for - we can't ask for more than that.
