Auld Lang Syne



2014 was certainly not the best year for those I love and I'm hoping that 2015 brings some sunlight into some dark corners. Most of you know my best friends lost their son in May, and it's been an unbearable journey. There will always be that sorrow that follows everything we do now. It has taught me to say I love you to just about everyone in my life as often as possible. That old saying  "you just don't know" is so damn true it can break your heart. So many things that seemed urgent or stressful just fall to the wayside now. Being happy in the place that you are and finding joy is something to strive for. 
Hug that person next to you...or dog or cat or yourself. Have that drink, take that trip ---eat that dessert. Play The Game. 

Again, thank you for reading--you are why I'm here.  Raise a glass to the New Year and do a spin around the room for fun.  Cheers.

Wise words, Karen. Happy new year to you too...

I don't comment much, but I read every day. You are part of my morning routine whether I am going to work, running errands, or staying home.

Hope that 2015 is a banner year for you and your family and friends.

OMG I just realized something!!!!
I am sitting at work (obviously bored) and was thinking it would have been nice to see Lucas and Brad at the Metrocourt party...then it hit me! Lucas must live off the life insurance policy from Tony's death! There. Phew. One unemployment mystery solved. I'm sure we'll all sleep better now. :-P

Happy New Year to Karen and everyone here. Thanks to everyone for posting honestly about GH and having a great place for us lone-watchers to feel connected.
