Today you would’ve been forty. Remembering you and your family on this day.
Thank you for sharing your talents with the world.
I remember New Year’s Eve last year as if it was yesterday. I was filled to the brim with anticipation, knowing in my gut, that the next year would be a huge year for me. I rarely cry, but that night I did. Maybe my spirit knew the journey I was embarking on and warning me to tighten up.
And, yes, it certainly has been one heck of a ride. I have grown so much this year, both professionally and personally. Not only have I made more money from writing than I ever have, humble brag, but I moved twice this year, to two different states!
There were some low moments this year that really tested my faith, but overcoming them has reconfirmed Whose I am.
In summation, 2018, you have been an experience. Some moments I enjoyed more than others. But looking back, I recognize that all those momentsl led me to where I am now.
Let’s go 2019.
A good friend of mine shared an encouraging quote with me.
“No matter how tall the mountain, it cannot block the sun.” -Chinese proverb
Even though it hurts sometimes, and it seems impossible, don’t lose faith. Stay in the race, and eventually you’ll find your second wind.
