A little bit late because it’s not the brink of the New Year anymore, but a worthwhile thought nevertheless:
On New Year’s Eve, Derek and I were at dinner with one of his friends from home who asked us, “What was your bud, rose, and thorn for 2013?” In other words, what was the beautiful part of your life, what has the most potential that you’re excited to see blossom in the future, and what was a pain? I thought it was an interesting way and especially beautiful visual to consider when reflecting on the past year. Here’s to 2014 and a year full of roses.
