Farwell 2012 - How fast the time Goes

Well, it sure has been awhile since I've posted.  The holidays have been very busy and start quite early around my place.  (Thus my absence from blogland - both posting & visiting with each of you).  Beginning with my birthday in mid November, running right into my niece's BD, my daughter's BD, and Thanksgiving - whoosh, before I know it we're already into December.  And then things get even crazier.  I'm sure most of you know what I mean - the shopping, the decorating, the preparations.  And in our case, there's always several hand crafted gifts; so Santa's workshop has been in full operation throughout Dec. too.  My, it all sure can get overwhelming sometimes.  And then it goes by fast!

So, here we sit, so close to the end of 2012.  Wow, that happened so fast.  It's been a year full of ups & downs and marked by the loss of three dear loved ones for me. While left with empty spaces that are/were so hard to get past; we continued to move forward & be better people taking the best of each as a part of us.  A never ending ambition, I've tried to learn, grow, and share as much as possible.  And in doing so, I have much to be thankful for and so much more yet to accomplish.

So, as I look toward next year; I hope to continue and improve in each of these - learning - growing - sharing as much as possible.  And like each other year, I'm really looking forward to getting back to a more normal schedule after the busy holidays.  With the cold winter months ahead, I'm hoping I can catch up on the blogging I missed out in December.  I have many fun things waiting on the back burner to share.

Many wishes to each of you that your New Year is healthy, happy, and all that you hope for and more!!

Until next time,
