What do you have now that you'll miss when it's gone?

Everything changes in life. Everything. If things are bad right now, don't worry, they'll change. Unfortunately, there's a flip side. If things are good right now, don't worry, they'll change.

I am still coming to terms with this idea.

In 2011, I lost three friends: Bridget Zinn, LK (Lisa) Madigan, and Craig Warner.


My kajukenbo class, which I adored ended right when I was on the verge of getting my purple belt, and I'm not sure it will be resurrected.


Even LiveJournal, which I have been a part of since 2006, seems a pale shadow of its former self. I could easily name two dozen authors I used to see post here who don't any longer.

The end of the year is a time to look back and reflect. I also look ahead and wonder, what do I have now that I won't at the end of next year? What will I miss when it's gone?

I promise to be thankful for, and mindful of:
- Health
- Friends
- Husband
- Teen
- Books under contract
- New possibilities

What would be on your list?

Other things have been good. Still, I wish I were like Teen, with life full of exciting things and no real understanding that there are hard things ahead to.
