It has been a great year. In fact, it’s been the best year of my life.
While the year, like all years, has had its ups and downs, the birth of our son overrides each of these joys and pains.
We don’t plan on having a new child every year, so we won’t get to experience this joy every year.
However, we will hopefully get to see our son grow, together with all of the experiences that that entails. As long as that happens, it’s likely that each successive year is going to be the best of my life.
Happy new year.
