For some New Year’s Eve is a momentous occasion. The ball drops, everyone kisses, and all those resolutions that never really take off seem for a moment in time fresh, new, and possible.
For those of us on the road to conscious conception, New Year’s can feel like a marker in time of a year past, which not only left resolutions in the gutter, but also our hopes and dreams.
So at this time of year we may find ourselves asking, is it a happy New Year?
This New Year’s Eve I hope your answer is unequivocally yes. For on closer inspection every year we leave behind has glimmering, shimmering, sparkling golden threads woven throughout it.
Yes, challenges and let downs, there are those too, yet if you look a bit closer they are not the mile markers of your life’s traveled road.
Perhaps tonight, on the precipice of falling over midnight and into 2012 is a good time to grab ahold of that thread, not unlike the loose thread on the sleeve of your favorite worn sweater. For you just may find that as you begin to pull on it, the string gets longer and the story of your joys begins to unfold.
I wish you a very happy New Year. May 2012 bring you your deepest desires, and if motherhood be one of them, a new life cradled in your welcoming arms.
Thank you for being a stretch of my golden thread from 2011.
