I don't have anything profound to say about the passing of one year to the next. I will say that 2007 has been without a doubt the saddest year of my life.
Usually I recognize the passage of time by the seasons. Summer is my favorite time, so I think of those three months as a gift to enjoy. I know not everyone likes the heat though, so I'm sure there are people who think of Autumn as a seasonal gift from above, loving the riot of colors and crisp days. Then there's Spring, full of promise. Winter, Hmm... not a big fan, but ok the snow is pretty for Christmas. (It could melt after that though.)
Today I will get out my new calendars. I have a Victorian themed wall calendar, brimming with images of all things Victoriana, themed for every month. Then there is my 365 cat's page a day calendar that I keep on my coffee table. I'm a loyal customer. I've been buying these two for many years.
I will say that I'm very glad I found so many fun wonderful and heartfelt blogs this year. There is so much pleasure to take in the "little things" in life and there is so much love to be cherished with our loved ones; animals and people. May everyone's New Year be Blessed. :)
