Snowy New Year’s Eve

Woke up to snow this morning, which was somewhat of a surprise. They’d been forecasting flurries and such, but there’s about 3 or 4 inches on the ground right now.

The holidays were nice, but, as always, went by too fast. Spent some time with the family and the husband, and that’s really what the holidays are about for me, not the gifts. Life is a gift. Family is a gift.

I’m a bit melancholy today, as I always am on New Year’s Eve. I’ve been reflecting on the past year, and how much, as always, things have changed. A year ago, I was not a happy person. Life wasn’t horrible, but I wasn’t able to appreciate what I had. Now, I’m happy and able to see how incredibly lucky I am. I have a husband whom I love with all my heart, and who is just…such a good man. I have a family whom I adore, and love to spend time with. I have a great career, good friends, my cats. What more could I ask for?

I’m still working on my resolutions, so I’ll post them later. For now, I’m going to enjoy the snow day and read until I have to pick up the husband from work (his car is horrible in the snow).

Today would have been John Denver’s 66th birthday. He was Emerson’s favorite singer. Yes, that makes me sound like a crazy cat lady, but it’s true. When I played John Denver’s songs, Emerson would purr like crazy. I can’t believe he’s been gone almost a year. I miss him very much. I like to think that he’s hanging out with John Denver wherever he is.
