I am ready for 2013! This fall has been completely emotionally exhausting. I look back and can't even believe all that has happened. I feel like I have been constantly up and down. There was immense sadness with the death of four extended family members. Joy with the long-awaited marriage of another. So much travel under stressful circumstances and a graduate class that showed me how much more I need to learn. Lots of Board work for one organization and lots of start-up work for another. Managing the kids, home, and school library. Yet, I realize how easy I have it. I am not oblivious to all the extreme suffering around me. I am trying to figure out a way to stay optimistic in a world that just wants to throw curveballs.
