It feels good as the year comes to an end. A year of so many challenges yet so many highlights. A paradoxical year. A year of incredible toughness and incredible blessings. Beautiful people entered my life. Friendships that needed to, faded away. Little friendships grew to strong, infallible relationships. New and wonderful people entered my world. For all of these things, for the toughness and the highlights, the tearing away and the incredible blessings, I am so grateful.
