2006: May It Rest In Peace

Here it is, Folks. The official last week of 2006. Can you believe it?

I can.

So many big, life changing events have happened this year that it feels like 10 years have been shoved into 1.
I don't wish to repeat it. But I've learned from it.

What have I learned?

I am stronger then I imagined.
I am more vulnerable then I imagined.
I have learned that while I can make it through life independently...
it's much nicer and easier to share my independence with close friends.
I used to cling to my past, marking my years with journals and
I have discovered that all it has done is weigh me down and prevent
me from living my life as I wish, baggage free.

What have I done?

I have begun to teach myself the art of speaking kindly to myself.
I have begun to teach myself to share burdens.
I have weeded through old journals and old photo's and burned the
one's that have been weighing me down.
I have begun to teach myself how to enjoy life just for today's
happiness and close my mind to future events. Good or bad.

This is my New Years list I have begun several months ago to work upon.

I feel stronger.
I feel more content.
I feel...optimistic.

Here's to the year 2007, Folks.

May it bring you all you need.
All the things you didn't know you wanted.
And the strength and good friends to work through and share
whatever life brings you.

Christmas Ship Goodness

Every year, boat owners bedeck their vessels in Christmas finery and parade them up and down the Columbia River for land lubbers to "oooh" and "ahhhh" at.

I, my son and friends, stood on the shore and "Ooh'd" and "Ahh'd".

The kat wagging it's backside was my favorite. *grin*

Grand times. Grand times.

Taking Time Off

I'm taking a bit of a break from blogging.
I'm sure I will return.
After a year and a half of blogging I feel the need to read and play and...step away from the computer for a bit.
I'll be checking in on all my favorite blog people.

Happy Holidays!
