This pendulum was wild in 2014; swinging from joy to pain and back again as the moments ticked away. Challenges, blessings, pleasures and frustrations tangled up like two clasping hands around my heart. Through it all I’ve maintained enough ungraceful momentum to push into the new year with a scrape of hopefulness. I will remind myself and forget just as quickly that happy moments will continue to shine and the dark ones will eventually fade to black.
This has been your year and mine.
“We are flawed creatures, all of us. Some of us think that means we should fix our flaws. But get rid of my flaws and there would be no one left.”
