Here are three photo collages that are help me remember the year with a softer heart.
This year we said goodbye to dad. Losing him isn’t a highlight but having time to remember dad, to reflect on his life, and to hear so many lovely stories from friends and family definitely falls into the highlight category. If we had been able to have a traditional service, there are many who would not have been able to attend. I am grateful for my creative and tech savvy family who helped us celebrate a life well lived.
There was a lot of knitting! There were 6 completed sweaters and numerous hats. There was some unraveling but I am not dwelling on that. Instead, I will imagine what beautiful things I will make with that reclaimed yarn.
And there was light. The light has always been there but I have not had the time or pace of life to pay attention. Looking for the light is a habit I want to take with me into the new year.
Happy New Year! We have a lovely bottle of champagne, delicious snacks, and a movie to watch. And tomorrow, we will be ready to begin a new year.
