Shana Tova!
If you're Jewish, you're about to ring in 5764!
I was thinking, briefly, that I hoped that the coming year doesn't suck as badly as last year. Then I realized I was being stupid. Sure, last year I had a kidney infection, gall bladder problems, surgery (see aforementioned gall bladder problems), an ear infection (still going...), etc. But you know what? Boo freaking hoo.

You know what else I got?

I finally ended all ambiguity and had an Orthodox conversion.
I got married (four days later).
I met some amazing people.
I was blessed with people all around offering to help when my health wasn't so fabulous.
I got a few new doctors. And hey, you can never have too many doctors.
I got to spend Shabbos virtually every week with friends.
I got to expand the relationships I already have.
I got the opportunity to move forward in my job to a new team with a new outlook.
I was able to see my father, his wife, and their new house.
I went to Bethany Beach for Shavuos.
I was able to grow as an individual and also as part of a couple with Seth.
I had a roof over my head, food to eat, and money to mostly do what I wanted to do.
I learned what it's like to have a root canal in one sitting. Oh wait, that's not on the good list.

There's more, of course. But this will do for now. As kmelion reminded me, and as I remind all of you, May the best of last year be the worst of the year to come.

I wish everyone a sweet new year filled with hopes of health, happiness, and success.

Current Mood: giddy giddy

*sniff* You're making me all mushy!

:-D

Seriously, we treasure all of our friendships, but yours has been a true blessing for us over the last year. May our friendship continue to flourish and may we all have a sweet new year.

May the best of last year be the worst of the year to come.
