It’s hard to believe that there are only 13 more days before the end of the year. It’s been a mighty long year, with lots of highs and lows.
I’m not quite sure where 2012 went. It flew by at a pace I never would have anticipated last January. And yet, here we are, eagerly anticipating the surprises that 2013 will bring.
“There’s only 13 more days until the end of the year!” my little Sophie just exclaimed incredulously as she read my lines above. She wants to know if this means the school year is ending, too. She’s in for big disappointment, since she still has another six months to go. To make matters worse, the district just announced that a planned vacation day in May has now been cancelled because of all the school the kids missed when Hurricane Sandy hit earlier this year.
I’ve always liked the number 13, despite it’s unfair reputation as an unlucky number. I have high hopes that 2013 will be a terrific year for all of us, with new beginnings, lots of laughs and never-ending smiles.
