As all things go, there is an end to everything – days, months and years included. And yes, 2016 is about to end and we think of those things we did this year, old and new friends we met, family togetherness, places we dreamed of visiting, lessons learned, hours wasted on senseless thoughts (sometimes) and all the other things that make life and living worthwhile.
It’s been a quiet year for us except those times we went out as a family to celebrate birthdays and those times we had visitors at home to celebrate with us too. It is always nice to get in touch with friends, sharing meals together and being happy just exchanging news and ideas. It is always nice to be with the whole family celebrating togetherness no matter how simple it is. We do find meaning in the ordinary things in our lives, one has to look back, discern, and admire what is before us. We find meaning in our brokenness, those times when we felt so down and everyone cared, we are just grateful for that.
Do you make new year’s resolution? I’ve never been good at keeping one. They always get broken one way or another. So I dream, make some of it into reality and just enjoy what is in store. The days are not always happy, some are like memories blurred at the edges, some are like a closed book so pleasant to discover, some are lovely thoughts waiting to be shared.
Blogging has become one major step to sharing with online friends. It is such pure heaven to meet fellow bloggers who share their lives, their hobbies, their families and their precious photos and memories. Blogging has become a daily exercise that I look forward to, reshaping my views with the world outside. Blogging has become a pleasant tool for friendship. I’ve finally reached more than 2,000 followers including my 90 followers linked at Twitter. Isn’t it nice that every day, the blog stats increase a little more than before? It’s close to 445,000 views now. I made a total of 157 blog posts this year, add maybe two or three more before the year ends. The wonder of blogging. May I just thank you all for sharing with me through my blogs and yours? Thank you, thank you so much.
May the next year be a pleasant, happy and fruitful one for all of us. Happy 2017 guys.
