The end of 37
Today I am no longer 37.....I am 38. 37 was an interesting year....38 feels very old....logically I know that is not very old in the grand scheme of life, but it feels old. I am thankful for lots of things this year, my health, that my immediate family are all alive and seemingly healthy, that I have this amazing relationship with my husband, and a new amazing relationship with Kula, the little dog that has stolen my heart. There are several issues I'm still grappling with....some days I have a hold on them, others they have a hold on my....the "baby" issue, ailing and failing grandparents, a father that dims sometimes slowly and sometimes very fast lately, the all awareness that he does have this disease of Alzheimers and he will change, is changing...right before all our eyes. These then are my up in the air, or philosophical challenges I have to address. But now is the time to embrace a new year, with grattitude...and so I do.
