I usually am sentimental at year's end...looking back to all the special and good times, thinking how fast time has passed. This year i am tempted to just say.....good riddance. The year started with an unexpected death of a young family member....and never did seem to recover. Yes, there were fun times and special moments....but mostly the year reminded my family to hug and hold each other tightly and remember to say the 'I love yous'.....and our special reply..'I love you more'. Even the grands are beginning to catch on to that reply...and insist that they do.
My time away with family was hectic but wonderful. We celebrated 2 Christmases, with 5 children under the age of 5. We shared good news...a niece got engaged, and another announced a new baby on the way. Twenty- five of us gathered at my sisters to laugh, share, and be thankful that we were indeed all together!
Master and i had M/M time yesterday. He gave me a grade of 85 with keeping up with my rules while i was away, i would have graded myself lower, so i am happy that His is the grade that counts. We looked back on this year agreeing that despite life interfering in was a year of growth, new experiences, and closeness.
I am so grateful for all of you....your support, your friendship, your comments, .... we are one lucky bunch to have each other! I wish that 2014 brings you lots of smiles and happy tears, good health, lots of spanks (and more), contentment and a happy heart!
