The year 2022 has been good, a big improvement over the two years prior. There were many blessings for me and my family. But it is now time to bid you farewell. I will see you to the door while holding a glass as I toast in the New Year. You have not been a bad year, but I do believe it is time for you to go.
As I prepare to celebrate your departure, I reminisce of this year’s events. You, Year 2022, will be most remembered as the year that marked the arrival of my last grandchildren. This year will be remembered as I look at my son and daughter-in-law’s long desired daughter, four boys and finally a daughter to make their family complete. Four boys are good, but sometimes mothers want a little of themselves to share. I am sure she will be spoiled. She has the look of a princess with four knights by her side.
Let us not forget the journey of Baby A, Baby B and Baby C. A huge surprise you brought us in March. A year entangled with prayer and hope to see if a set of triplets would enter our family fold. We were not disappointed, they arrived all well and good. Three growing healthy boys we added in the end.
Not least among the year’s events was a visit from my oldest daughter with her three children in tow. There first visit to the farm brought lot of laughter and joy. Grandchildren finally were able to ride the famed Victoria and found all the stories were true. She will follow a cow without a miss or a cue. Her sudden moves a little scary, but the ride was exciting. We ate, played games, laughed and had fun. As I reminisce this year 2022 the creation of memories to last a lifetime we made.
You were not all joy and fun, you brought some strong winds of change. Some might call it a tornado when a source of income is done. My husband’s on a journey of finding work again. Where we might land is the question. But you will not bring the answer to us, for your time is now done. The New Year will determine where and when we land.
There are dreams and hopes we have as our New Year arrives. The New Year will bring untold blessings and challenges that will be revealed as the New Year and us journey forward together.
You and I will travel towards the door of departure with games, fun, food and fest. Out the door you must go and have your rest.
