Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight...

It's New Year's Eve.
Full disclosure:
  I am exhausted.
But, I am going to force myself to
  stay up 'till midnight
and ring in the New Year properly.
By "properly", I mean
 be in bed by 12:01am.
This night,
  typically,
is for reflection and contemplation.
It's a time to look back on the past 365 days
 and think about what you want to make of
the next 365.
Tonight, I'm a myriad of emotions.
I'm sad because my sister is in the hospital,
 fighting off a gross post-op infection.
Event though I think 2015 is going to be an amazing year for her
 I still had hoped she would have a better start.
But she'll kick this infection in the ass
 like she does anything that tries to cross her
and this year will be her best yet.
I'm thrilled because this was an amazing year for my son.
He was his shiniest and bravest and grew so much.
There are still things to work on,
but that will be forever, right?
This year, my best guy went surfing.
He tried horseback riding and learned to ride a bike,
 and performed in front of hundreds of people in huge venues.
Oh, that Boy of mine.
Somehow, he always exceed my expectations.
And now, there are ten minutes left in 2014
 and I think about the mark I want to make on the year.
I don't think I'll go the traditional resolution route.
There is a laundry list of things to change and improve on but,
    instead,
I think I'll focus on the things I did right in 2014
and keep them going.
I feel like if I do that,
  improvement can't help but follow.
So, that's what I wish for all of you-
 a year full of love and health and happiness and fulfillment
and a year of continuing the good things in your life.

Happy, happy New Year to everyone I love, to the friends I have met through this little blog, to so many people who show me their love and support and friendship. Wishing you ALL the best of everything that 2015 has to offer you!
