Sunday Scribblings: Destination

The short answer to this week's Sunday Scribblings prompt is that my family and I are spending New Year's Eve with in-laws. Our destination is an hour away at a family party, which started as a way of having something to do while collectively watching so many little ones. Now, our kids are the youngest members of the brood.

(As an aside, one of the kids named the New Year's party The Uncle Party because ... well ... there are so many uncles around! Maybe we should create an Aunt Party, too.)

The long answer is that we want to connect with the people who mean the most to us at the start of something and the end of something. I mean, most of us are lucky to be surrounded by friends and family when we enter and exit this world. I think New Year's celebrations (and birthdays) reminds us all of this in some way. And with a New Year comes hope that our journeys will be happy ones.

So no matter where you are destined to be when the clock strikes midnight, I wish you happiness and good health in 2007. And thanks to all those who participate in Sunday Scribblings every week. You remind me that I never have to go it alone.

How lucky you are to have an extended family, as well as the opportunity to spend time with them during the holidays. "Family" is a good destination, no matter what time of year it is . Enjoy!

We've always had the vague idea that you should start the year in a way that you want to continue, but my husband was very proactive with that idea this year. He made sure that we spent New Year's Day with family, friends, food, and fun. I hope you enjoyed the same!
