This has been a miserable year. It would be too depressing to go through the list of reasons, but we can agree that Marlene's and Dad's deaths would rank as the top two on the list. All the other things just compounded the sadness and stress.
I hated 2011 and am quite glad today is New Year's Eve. I just want to eliminate so many unhappy memories, but I know that's not possible.
They say that what doesn't kill you is supposed to make you stronger, but I would like to opt out of that concept. I don't want to get any stronger in 2012.
What I want for our family, and what I wish for you, is peace and happiness in 2012.
