As 2023 comes to a close, I walk forward to tomorrow, cautiously and with some great anticipation. It's confusing to feel this melding of dread and hope. Yet, above it all, there is peace in my heart, for I know that each day the sun will rise. I will cherish this borrowed breath as it is given, I will watch for the fingerprints of the Creator in all that I see around me. I will walk forward even when I grow weary because the strength is not my own. And I will hold onto these ever so quickly passing moments I treasure with the people I have been given to live alongside.
And I will ride this wonderful horse every chance I get. :-)
