For 2019

We face 2019
with heavy hearts
from a devastating loss 
of a loved one
in the final days of 2018

a year that took
3 from our little family

a year full of
sadness and horrors
in the wide world
beyond our little corner

but a year
also full of
love
hope
family
success
joy
happiness
and those small
moments that make
life
so very worthwhile

Let 2019
be filled with those
magical
moments of good
moments of quiet joy
and silly fun

Let 2019 be the year
you find wonders
and simple pleasures
and possibilities

For that's where you make
magic

  5. I'm so sorry 2018 was such a terrible year for your family. I had a loss of my own so won't look on 2018 with too much fondness. Let's hope that 2019 is a better year for us, and everyone else.

  6. So sorry for your losses of family members this year. Any losses can be very hard, but three in one year must be heartbreaking. Hope 2019 is a better year for your family.
