It is Saturday, 12/28/2013, near the end of the holiday week, the end of my vacation week, and also the end of the year.
The week went by with some parties, gathering with friends and, most of all, time spent with the children.
Now the children are leaving one after another, with one already left on the day after Christmas, one leaving tomorrow, one next Tuesday, and the last one still having two weeks before leaving.
I am so grateful that they all have come and have filled my days with joys and laughter that no occasion can replicate. I am so happy to see them happy and having a good time here.
I have learned to enjoy and appreciate the good times that I spend with the children because I know too well that good times are never long enough and are gone too fast. And all that’s left is the memories of the good times. In fact, I have already started relishing the jokes they cracked at each other. And instead of laughing with them, now I laugh alone.
Now, no more jokes. Get serious, get ready for another new year and another beginning!
