Looking back over 2012, I realize that it was a horrible year. The only really good things that came out of it for me was Dyed in the Wool, The Fiber Binder Club and all of my fiber friends all over the world. My relationship with Scott remains the highlight of my life, so that is good, too.
Money has been tighter than ever, cars have broken down and cost lots of money to fix, there have been health issues, friends have lost jobs, I lost my Mom and a beloved sister-in-law,… And these are just a few of the things that has been left in 2012′s wake.
And not just for me, either. The world has suffered much during 2012. All sorts of wars, senseless killings of multitudes of innocents, natural disasters… 2012 has much to answer for. In fact, in all of my life, I cannot remember a worse year.
So, good-bye 2012 and good riddance. I certainly hope that 2013 is much better for seeing the tail-end of you. If we all work together for the good of us all, then 2013 has a chance. At midnight (or the last waking minute if you aren’t staying up to see the new year in), please pray for 2013 that it is a much better year for everyone.
