Oh my giddy Aunt
Can you believe it?
Another year has begun!
2012 was a, let's say "interesting" year
Take away the drama a bit but lets face it
I was nearly killed in a car accident at the beginning of 2012
My friend and I
both of us
and yet here we are
battle scarred but moving on in this crazy thing called life.
My friend is moving to Queensland
I'm staying at good old "Greystanes"
but something has shifted.
I see things a little differently now
I guess that happens when you dance a little with the grim reaper
I love my husband and family with such a passion now I can't use words
but a clearer number
I can see what counts
I still love my old stuff
but boy oh boy do I love life
That car accident of 2012 could be yesterday for me, I still struggle with the ongoing problems of it
Friends and family pretty much don't mention it anymore
But in a weird way
I'm sort of glad it happened
I feel different
more focused on what matters
I see people a lot more clearly now, how they fit my life
Hard to explain
Some of you may get it, those who have touched the lip of life
Have a rocking and totally totally awesome action packed full and freaking amazing 2013
I know I will
and appreciate the beauty in all things
especially the stuff of Old
I still love it with a passion
nearly as much as my family
Things happen for a reason
and take from it those truley awesome lesson that it presents you in all its facets of ambiguity and clarity...
and here's a pretty picture of our wrap around verandah because life is beautiful and precious...
