how did december get here so quickly?
i love the month and all that it brings, but i love other months, too. it seems like just yesterday that snowbanks were melting; spring flowers bloomed at alarming rates; summer passed by in a blur; fall was here and gone before i could blink. and now we are ready to start a new cycle of seasons. christmas is just around the corner. 2013 is approaching with lightning-fast speed, reminding me of what i have or have not done as well as what i hope to do.
