Overnight, one year quietly blended into the next.  I can’t decide whether I'm more relieved that last year is over or that a new year has begun.  It’s hard to get excited about the year ahead when the expectation of loss lingers, hovering over an unknown date on a new calendar.
Two thousand ten left my heart mostly full, and it will likely remain full as the pages of the coming year unfold.  There will be hard times, reality will erode my hopes to worries, but I will try to allow rough days to be what they are, view them as just a little brighter than perhaps they are, making the year the same.
