Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year - strange words. I always remember feeling slightly sad on 12/31. Although I knew new days were on my horizon, I was always rather sad for the passing of the year. The end of 2012 has been shocking. I went from the complete HIGH of C's wedding and the anticipation of a new grandbaby and then came the murders in Newtown and MY own sweet town. Even though I knew I should be so very thankful for each day, I have felt myself overwhelmed with sadness. I won't get into any discussion of my feelings on mental illness and gun control, instead I will say that deep in my heart my true hope is that some piece of goodness comes from all this sadness. That people continue with the acts of kindness far into this new year and all the years that come. That people think before they say something unkind, love unconditionally, and live each day. God Bless everyone in 2013 and beyond.

Agreed! I can't make the jump from adorable blog written from the perspective of a pug to a serious discussion on social issues. But no matter what, I pray that good will be able to shine through this darkness. Not to excuse any behavior or actions, but hopefully someone can find enlightenment or positivity in these situations.

Peace and joy to you in 2013.
