I’ve always thought of New Years Eve as more of a sad time rather than a happy time.
If we had a special event during the year such as a wedding, moving into a new home or the birth of a child, I hated to see that year come to a close.
Becoming a grandparent has changed those feelings for me. Each year brings a new adventure. Watching our children and grandchildren experience new things is a joy to watch.
This new year will bring us a our sixth grandchild. Our oldest granddaughter will be turning ten years old and is becoming such a beautiful young lady and big sister. Our oldest grandson will be turning four and gets smarter everyday! The three youngest will be turning two. I look forward to hearing the funny conversations we will be having with them once they learn to “Use their words.”
The new year reminds us that nothing stays the same. We need to enjoy each day we are given and make the most of them. We need to cherish the memories we are making today.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year and may all your memories be happy ones!
