See Ya, 2016

December is traditionally the month of reflection—a time to look back at the year to assess goals and accomplishments.  My husband and I were talking last night, not so much about which goals we met, but rather about 2016 events that made us happy. While engagements, new jobs and houses for our kids top the list, I’m very happy to report we finally finished our house without killing our builder.

My mom would’ve loved this house—the setting, the birds and animals, the river and pond, and especially the snow at Christmas. 

I miss Mom a lot at the holidays. One of my favorite holiday memories is Mom making cookies with the kids. While unpacking, I found the cookie cutters in one of the boxes marked “Christmas. ” I think I’ll head into my new kitchen, whip up a batch of gingerbread dough, and invite the neighbor’s kids over.

What’s on your list of “good things” for 2016?

Cathy Perkins started writing when recurring characters and dialogue populated her day job commuting daydreams. Fortunately, that first novel lives under the bed, but she was hooked on the joy of creating stories. When not writing, she can be found doing battle with the beavers over the pond height or setting off on another travel adventure. Born and raised in South Carolina, she now lives in Washington with her husband, children, several dogs and the resident deer herd.
