New Year’s Eve can bring with it memories of years past. Some of my earliest are my cousin and I, dressed in little girl party dresses, taking coats from the guests at my grandparents large bashes. I hold memories of my children dancing with me, their small feet planted firmly on top of mine, close to my heart.
There have been sad ones, too. I remember the first New Year’s Eve after my first marriage ended, hoping to be fast asleep by midnight. And nostalgic ones, like my mom and dad clasping hands and singing Auld Lang Syne, long after they were gone. Thankfully, there have been many beautiful memories with my husband, the first one dancing at an Inn on the lake, lights sparkling off the water.
Whatever New Year’s memory you’ll be making or reminiscing about tonight, I hope it’s filled with good health and good times…Cheers!
