The End And The New Beginning

The year is ending, as symbolized by my last cactus flower of the year closing up. I am thankful for everything this past year, and am hopeful for the year ahead, beginning at sundown tonight. I pray for our health and well-being and the hope that the goodness in people will prevail over the bad. I wish for many more cactus flowers, baby quail, and heirloom tomatoes.
I hope that my daughter continues to grow into a kind, caring person that can make her way in this unpredictable world. As I attend a seminar "College 101" this morning, thinking ahead for her, I also hope that I will be here to guide her through those years. At this point, the decision is out of my hands, and will be written by a higher power.
