The last day of the year is here. Tomorrow I pull off the Makoto Hasebe calendar off my wall.
Despite the fact that it rarely if ever functioned as a calendar, it brought me a year supply of smiles. Every time I looked at that "calendar" on my wall, I had to chuckle at the hilarity of a calendar that doesn't do much, at my impulsiveness to buy such a thing in the first place, at the fact that I still kept it on my wall.
This year has kind of been that way. I've made a lot of mistakes. I've been foolish and impulsive. Sometimes, I feel like I've done little to serve in the capacities to which I've been called. However, I've learned from my mistakes and laughed a lot at myself in the process. I've continued to do my best with what I've been given. I've never given up.
Thank you 2011.
And I never thought I'd say it, but I think I'll miss having a non-functioning calendar on my wall.
On to 2012.
