comes to an end memories of it are quite emotional for one reason or another.
I got honey bees this year. Picking them up from the bee man was almost undescribable as there seemed like 1000's of bees were flying around his place. Light and airy objects who did not cause one to run in fear but instead stand in awe.
The joy of seeing my youngest sing in the school musical and get the recognition that he deserved from his performance.
The smell of my oldest as I held him for the first time after the shootings at his university.
Watching my brother and grandmother polka at her 90th birthday.
Watching my youngest and his friends sitting around a campfire building relationships that will hopefully last a life time.
The sorrow in my uncle's eyes as I said goodbye to him for the last time before his death. Death did not seem to be scary for him. What he minded the most was that life for the rest of us would go on and he was going to miss weddings, graduations etc.
I am oh so grateful at the end of this year. Life is a blessing.
