It is no secret that I am a fan of New Year. As someone who is goal oriented, I love the concept of a fresh start – a new book with 365 sparkling white pages waiting to be written. I have many things on my list for 2015. They’re pretty flexible and if I don’t achieve every one I won’t be discouraged, because that’s not what they’re there for. They’re an incentive, an inspiration, a hopeful encouragement to be the best I can be. Not the best compared with everyone else, just the best me.
I saw in the New Year with friends who have become very close in the past year and with whom I am looking forward to sharing life in these coming months. They have been a real Godsend in the most literal sense of the word and I have been so thankful for them and my other close friends who have walked 2014 with me.
Most of all, I am inexpressibly grateful to have a husband by my side who prefers to hope even if that results in disappointment. You can’t avoid disappointment in life, but you can choose to hope and I am hopeful for 2015.
Besides, who wouldn’t be when their husband starts the year with a delicious home-made brunch of Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon (including a hollandaise sauce made from scratch!)
Happy New Year!
