As we get ready to say good-bye to 2015, I remember the mixed emotions that I had when we said good-bye to 2012. Since 2012 was the year that we lost our sweet Olivia, it would seem natural to want that year to be gone. However, leaving 2012 behind was also very hard for me because it meant that I was closing a chapter in our book in which Olivia's character was present. I felt that I was leaving her behind or even being farther away from the time that she existed.
Now when I leave behind another year, I feel indifferent on the matter. One reason is that I know that I can't stop time and the other reason is knowing the special moments that are to come with Ainsley as she grows and experiences life as a little girl.
So, happy new year to you all. May your new year be filled with peace and love.
