In just a few days, we will be into a brand new year, 2015.  But before we start the new year, I like to take a look back at this year.

It has been a really good year.  I was promoted and finally received a raise at work after 2 and a half years.  It was a wonderful surprise and an unexpected end to my job search that I had started earlier in the year.

I reconnected with two friends who I had not seen in several years.  One friend returned to the United States after living abroad in Africa for several years and it was great to see her again.  My other friend I had just lost touch with and we finally got together again and it was wonderful to see each other.

And I became a published author!  I wrote a blog on LinkedIn about working part-time and it went viral!!  It got several thousand hits and a couple people asked if they could publish my article on their blog!

My 88 year old aunt and my uncle and his wife left the DC area and moved down to Florida.  They seem to be doing well down there, but it feels weird not having them close by.  I don’t know when I will see them again.

Overall, it was a great year and I hope that 2015 will be even better.  Best wishes to all of you for a fabulous new year!

    • Thanks for reminding us to take a moment to look at the past year!

      2014 has been a wild roller coaster ride for me.  Even just the past few weeks have been a wild ride.  I think I hope for a calmer 2015.

      I’ve learned a lot about life and myself.  I’ve spent an awful lot of money.  I’ve gotten a fantastic raise.  I’ve gotten to know my son again and he is an amazing wonderful young man.  I’ve remodelled one house, bought a different one, and been unsure if either decision was right.  One of my dearest friends ever passed away this summer.  I miss her so much especially when the world overwhelmes me.

      And just in the past week I’ve reconnected with my hubby and I think we are going to make things work for us...finally.
