The time of year when beginnings and endings are all mixed up, when we know that beginning doesn’t always come before ending.
Within the span of five days many important celebrations begin and end for me.
December 31st: End of 2014, beginning of 2015.
December 30th: My birthday with no beginning or end. Also my sister Margot’s birthday.
December 28th: Beginning of our 52nd year of marriage. No end in sight.
December 25th: We celebrate the birth of the message of love; and love never ends.
