The Christmas tree is on the curb, its needles already sucked up by the vacuum, and the snowman collection is carefully packed away. The stockings no longer hanging with care, but stored in a bin until next Christmas.
I am ready for the New Year. I am not shutting out the past of 2011, not ignoring all it brought forth, just ready for what 2012 will bring. Open to possibility, anticipating with hope all that is to come.
