I don’t really have the mental stamina required to take a look back over the past year. There are so many things that I will forget and barely remember the details of that I’m sure to miss something. Still, it’s worth it to note a few highlights:
The end of the Star Wars saga, or at the very least, the completion of it. Sure, the books will continue and there are rumors of a live-action television show…but for those of us who have lived our entire lives under the fear of the Empire and the hope of the Rebellion, it’s a sad moment.
- My goddaughter was born on July 2 to my very best friends. Gabrielle Raye is a beautiful bundle of joy and those of you who know me, know I don’t dote on infants all that often. I’m extremely honored to be her “Godfather” and I only hope I can be as influential as my godmother was to me.
- I celebrated my continued marital bliss to my lovely wife. We’ve been married for 2 years, 4 months, 18 days and roughly 15 hours. I wouldn’t change a single second of that time together. She’s been a completion of my life that I never imagined would be possible and I appreciate our every moment.
I am among the fortunate. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday or whatever experience you wish to celebrate. I may be writing over the holidays, but I may not as well. Here’s to a wonderful new year in 2006. May you all get everything you wish for.
