Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I am happy that my daughter put this photo she took of the last sunset of 2013 where  I could steal it.  This was one of the prettiest sunsets I have ever seen---AND---it just happened to be out the rear view mirror as we went out to dinner last night and  proves without a doubt that---HAPPINESS IS 2013 IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR!!!!  This was a beautiful sight and was gone in less than five minutes.

Unfortuntely, our trials do not know that we ticked over to a new year. Hard trials have no time line. So we will most assuredly have hard times in 2014. I think the key is to just appreciate the good times when they come. But it was nice of 2013 to give you such a nice sunset on the way out. :)
