I just wanted to write and thank you for everything.
*thank you for my family - for my Mom and Dad and my brother and sister-in-law and my gorgeous little niece, and my extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins and one Oma. Thank you for their health and happiness and just for them being here in the first place.
*thank you for this blogging community. I'm not very good at it anymore, but people still come to read what I have to say and I appreciate that. Thank you for all of them. Thank you for their honesty in their own posts and comments. I hope they all have love and happiness and that they know that their words matter to someone. (I won't put links here because I don't want to hurt anyone by forgetting them.)
*thank you for the tribe of women I have encircling me. They know who they are. It's been a difficult year in a lot of ways. You gave us a lot of work to do and some pretty big challenges. We have made it through and are stronger than we were in 2006! Thank you for their presence in my life.
*thank you for the roof over my head, continued health, a job, and for constant inspiration and challenge.
*thank you for the most romantic moment of my life - so far.
*thank you for other adventures - for Bath and for London and for Bournemouth and for walks around reservoirs, and for Dartmoor, and for the beautiful place I live.
*thank you for my parents coming and seeing me where I live and for every ounce of unending support they continue to provide - even when they don't understand their unconventional daughter.
*most of all, thank you for another year with the love of my life.
Thank you for everything, and I look forward to meeting your successor.
All my love,
You are going to be the best year of my life - so far.
(Just thought I'd better let you in on that so we are both on the same page!)
LOVE, meg. xo
(Happy New Year everyone!! Make a good wish tonight and I'll see you in '08!)
