I doubt we’ll be up late…

I doubt we'll be up late enough to ring in the New Year, but Kevin and I shared a little champagne after the kids were finally down. Celebrating sufficient unto the tired parents thereof. And I lit a sparkler, because in Sri Lanka, New Year's Day is always celebrated with fireworks.

Wishing you a brave heart and a stalwart spirit in 2016, because life is sometimes a battle, as my 2015 certainly demonstrated. But also wishing you peace, love, and joy, because my past year has had plenty of those gifts as well. It's easy to be overwhelmed by troubles -- some of them are truly overwhelming. But try to take what moments you can for life's pleasures. They're there, waiting; you just need to stop long enough to reach for them.

Peace, love, joy -- and fireworks.
