Here we are at the end of another year. Which is crazy, really. Where did the time go?
If I’m honest, 2018 has not been particularly kind to us. It’s been rough, actually. A handful of real estate deals have gone south, plunging us into economic uncertainty. We’ve spent a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out what to do. We’ve each taken second jobs just to pay the most essential bills. We may end up selling the house to prevent its foreclosure.
Then what? Who knows. But here’s the thing. We could look at it as a failure, as some huge misfortune befalling us. Or we could look at it as a big do-over. A chance to clean the slate and start again.
Surely we’re not the first people to find ourselves in this position, and we won’t be the last. But we’re luckier than many, I imagine. We have each other. We’re a team, and if I have to go through such a scary time, I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone but Mr. R.
So this weekend, join us in raising a glass to the possibilities of the brand new year. May 2019 bring you all the best of everything, surrounded by those you love. Be sure to give them a hug.
Happy Saturday night!
