2008...Get On Up and Get Outta Here.

Today could have been my sixth wedding anniversary. And really, thank god it isn't.

I don't consider myself a religious person, nor a particularly spiritual one. But I do believe that there is some higher, intangible force at work in the world. Some things in life are just too beautiful, too painful, too hysterically funny for there not to be.

In the same vein, I believe everything happens for a reason.

When people come into my life, there is a reason. Some lesson to be learned or some role to be played. Sometimes that role or lesson isn't clear until hours, days, months after the fact. And maybe its not what I thought it would be at first. But its always there.

The last month has been one of the hardest of my entire life, because I couldn't see a reason for any of the pain and suffering. But something has shifted in my head in the last few days and I think maybe I get it now. Not going to go into it here, now, but as the year progresses I'll let y'all know if I'm right.

For anyone that has been reading this, thank you and, if it suits you, have a blast ringing in the new year. I plan on making tomorrow's ride as difficult as possible by making sure that I'm liquored up and dancing as I kick 2008's ass out of the door.

I am glad to hear you have learned something, or at least, think you have.
Have fun ringing in New Years. I will be eating pizza with my 6 year old at midnight.....;)
