The shopping is done
Presents have been opened and put away.
Family has been hosted.
The broken refrigerator has been replaced.
My time is my own for a week.

Looking forward to getting back to writing
and reading
and decluttering,
sleeping and breathing
and catching up with family, friends, my characters.

I've been allowing 2013 to wind down, putting it behind me, and looking forward to 2014 tentatively. This year has the potential to be really great or devastating with not much room for in between.

I choose hope and faith, shielding my heart from fear.

How was 2013 for you? Are you looking forward to the new year?


  1. That sounds a little ominous, those extremes. Here's to hoping it's really great. Happy New Year, Suzie!

    1. Yes, and I struggled with whether or not I should even mention it, though I'm being purposely vague. But that's where I am right now. I'm choosing to focus on the positive though.

      Happy New Year to you, Donna!

  2. Happy New Year, my friend. Wishing you and your family much happiness in 2014. X

    1. Happy New Year to you and yours, Donna!
