This is goodbye--Adios-Hasta luego

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I will remember 2012 with warmest regards and much affection. I am so sad to see 2012 come to an end. Really quite bummed about it. You see I have had some really crappy years for about a decade or so. 2012 was the first great year in a long long time. If you have read my anniversary blogs you understand why. Let's just say I found myself. I know or I am getting to know who Bonnie Grimsley is and I think, no I know we can be best friends forever.

It is with enthusiasm, but some trepidation that I say WELCOME 2013. What do you have in store for me? Will I keep this weight off? Will I find Mr. Right? Is there such a thing as Mr. or Mrs. Right? My biggest fear(Gary says I am a worry wart) will my Mom be here in 2014? I am afraid of losing her, she hasn't been well lately. We have a trip coming up next December. Will I finally be able to find a volunteer job? I have been looking. Whoever thought volunteering would be as hard as finding a job. Maybe no one wants me and that is why. My son Paul, that is always a big ???? What will his life be. I have accepted that he made his bed and it is his life. He has to live it, I don't. I do hurt for him thought, I really do. Will I have to move? Will I have the surgery?Will Brianna go to Boston University, the one she really wants. Will Kim and Kevin get married. psst I will tell you a secret my Mom doesn't like him, but hey she doesn't like many people. Getting cratchety you know. emoticon sometimes she don't like me. That's my story and I am sticking to it. No question about Mike and Sue after 15 years they are so totally in love, more so each year I think. Although Sue did learn that Mike use to go skinny dipping late at night with his Explorers troop. She said she may have to consider the wedding contract. emoticon Yeah right Sue. Paula and Dusty no doubt will go further into debt. Chuck will remain being Chuck. Gee maybe I should go see a psychic!!!!!

What about my SP family? I do consider you like family. You certainly support me more than my family does. I wish you all a healthy, prosperous, and joyous New Year. May it bring all your dreams to your doorstep. I hope tragedy and despair never show at your door and if they should, you have the faith, hope and courage to deal with it. You know that I will be here for you through thick and thin just as you have been for me.

HAPPY NEW YEAR------HAPPY NEW YEAR-----HAPPY NEW YEAR-----

    Bonnie!! You scared the daylights out of me with that title!!!

2012 has been an amazing year in so many ways for you; I hope you will hold the year fondly in your heart and head into 2013 stronger than ever and take it on with the excitement new things brings to life.

Thank you for all the light and joy you share with me and for making this journey not only easier but so much more fun than it would have been without you. I am looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store for us; I'm expecting wonderful things!

    OMG! You scared me with that title!!!!! PHEW Ok, well, I'm ok with saying bye to 2012, approach 2013 with a little fear and trepidation, but hey . . . I'm up to living each day the best I can, so time will march on and I'll still be standing!

Families . . . gotta love 'em, don't have to like 'em. Friends, like 'em AND love 'em! That's the beauty of friends. . . spark and otherwise!

HUGS to you as we approach this new year and may it be filled with blessings, abundance, health and happiness.

Something I always told my little sister about meeting Mr. Right:

1. You will meet him when you least expect it.

2. You'll KNOW when it's right.

3. If you have to ask yourself if he's Mr. Right, chances are pretty good that he isn't!

4. Always remember . . . there's a huge difference between being Mr. Right and being perfect! NOBODY is perfect (well . . . sparkers are, but that's another story! LOL) So, don't go for perfection!

5. If he makes you laugh, cry, FEEL emotion, that's a good start to being Mr. Right.

Just some wisdome I learned from my Mom that I passed onto little sis and now you.
