Well the end of 2013 is fast approaching. Although I always count my blessings I have to say that this was not my favourite year. I end it in better shape than I found myself in the middle of the year so I enter 2014 with a degree of optimism. That is, to be honest, how I enter most years :lol:
This is the time when you look back over the last year and reflect on things in general. I have been here for over a year now and, if I thought I was enjoying it at this time last year I can only say I am loving it now. :D I have made many friends here who I  count as good friends even though I have met none of you in person. I find myself among a large and growing group of kind, caring, considerate, warm, loving, thoughtful, charming, amusing, tender and talented people. :love: I don't think I ever thought I would meet so many people who I actually love. :love: I mean that. You all give me so much. You have brought so much to my life, each and every one of you. Your support seems to know no end and the joy you give me will probably surprise you. :happybounce: I could actually shed a tear when I think of the kindness I experience here on a daily basis. I am a sentimental person, I admit that, and kindness is just as likely to make me cry as sadness or anger. 
I suppose I am really just trying to thank you all for making my life a more enjoyable one just because you are all there.  I would just like to make it clear that I have not had a drink yet so this is not the result of red wine intake ( I may just allow myself a glass today). It is genuine and heartfelt thanks to you all for adding to my life. There are so many things that you come up against that detract from your life experience but here I only get additions and lots of them. 
I am going to share a few pictures with you that have also filled me with joy and even envy (but in a good way). I truly love so many of you and wish you all you can possibly dream of for the coming year. :party: :heart: :hug: :love: :tighthug:
