Another year has flown by! We may not be rockin’ at midnight like the younger kids, but that’s OK; we have lots to feel festive about as we roll in the new year. Not only has this old world survived another year of overuse and abuse, but it’s been a banner year in LollyPopLand.
All in all, it was a very good year. To replay just the highlights:
January: Annabelle Rose arrived on the 11th to everyone’s great joy.
February: John and I celebrated seven years of marriage with nary an itch.
March: Our beloved Kitty marked two years since her last cancer treatment and all is well. Hallelujah!
July: “Midnight in Paris” made us feel like we were there, and Mother turned 76 in good health. Hooray!
August: The West Memphis 3 were freed on the 19th!! The circumstances could have been more forthright, but at least the nightmare is over. On the familial front, Jude started kindergarten and John and I started grad school.
September: Rhonda and I had birthdays together for the 24th year, and Occupy Wall Street caught people’s attention.
Make that it was a great year. Things are never simple and nothing is perfect, but all things considered, we have a wonderful life.
