Lost so much this year... my son and his girlfriend of 5 yrs broke UP! That means I lost my step grandchild...and the hopes of his marriage and settling down any time soon...sigh. But look at what I gained...the year was not an entire wash....actually if I cut myself out of other equations of family, friends, and country my personal year was okay....still I grieve with the collective over certain things.
Dec: and then before I knew it the Red Kettle was up in front of the Food Lion where I shop for food. I always give a little, not much, as I am on a tighter budget than you would think!
