On the last day of this year…
and what a year it has been
I will take a breath and be grateful for the beautiful moments, and there have been many
I will close the chapter on this year – triumphs and disasters, victories and regrets, marvellous and mundane
I will look forward to a new page tomorrow and I will take heart that I am not writing this book but I am participating in its unfolding drama.
I can trust the author and finisher implicitly even when I do not understand it twists and turns. When the way ahead seems unclear I can be secure I have not been abandoned and nor will I ever.
Good bye 2011 I open my arms to the adventures of 2012.
