And so it is that 2012 has come to a conclusion. While last year saw challenges the likes I wasn’t sure how to handle, I apparently made it out just fine overall. As I have spent the last few days looking back over 2012, I recall the immeasurable joy for the birth of my first grand child, Ms. Kylee Rae. I choke back recurring tears for the loss of Eva, Tony, Mike, Isaac, and Aaron. I give thanks yet again that 2 wheeled accidents did not claim my son, Mike, Bob, Roger, Dan, Neal, or Lucas. I am ever grateful for the support and encouragement from my family, my friends, my riding buddies, and my community.
I gave a great deal of forgiveness in 2012 and have asked for some in return as well. I have seen love flourish amongst my friends and I have seen love lost. I have been honored to meet countless new riders and to grow awareness for many organizations we support. Stress has gotten me down and determination has gotten me up; thankful for more of the later than the former.
Old friends have come along for another year, some friends showed their true colors, and new friends have made a place in my heart. I have done my best for charity and have accepted charity for myself.
The worst year of your life is when life has no more years.
I accept all that is for what it is. I make all I can of what I have. And I am always grateful for another day …. welcome 2013… I’m gonna Rock It!!!
