Saying Good-Bye to 2013

2008Today we bid farewell to 2013. For many people living in Michigan, and throughout the United States, it has been a difficult year. Hard working people lost jobs, homes went into foreclosure and retirement funds dwindled.

If 2013 were to be summarized in a short phase, many probably would say, “It was all about the economy.”  And, as I reflect on 2013, I have decided it was not all about the economy.

Yes, we all have been effected in one way or another by the Michigan economy. But, it was also a year filled with laughter with family and friends, both new and old.

It was a year of beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

It was a year of new adventures and opportunities.  It was a year of seeing things we haven’t seen before and learning things we didn’t know before.

It was one more mile in the journey of life. 

And, It was a year I learned to appreciate even more the beautiful world we live in!
