It is always sad for me when a year comes to an end. Flashbacks of special moments that will never happen quite the same way
again take center stage.
And the flip side: good riddens to all things unhappy.
And, of course, it was another year that I did not spend with my parents who I miss so much. I remind myself that while they are gone, they are with me forever. After all, I believe that our lives don't just end when our heart stops, but that we live on in those that love and remember us.
So as life moves forward into a new year, I say goodbye to 2015.
Thanks for the all the memories. Of course, we like the happy times, but we need to remind ourselves that the bad ones happened for a reason and most likely did us some good and perhaps made us stronger.
Welcome 2016. I look forward to all the possibilities.
