January First, a day for the 3 R’s; Resolutions, Reflections and *the most important of them all) Rum !!!
This isn’t going to be a slurred hiccup fuelled post…. It is a small, little tradition. Raising a glass to those who lived life to the fullest, but that never made it out of last year alive.
And this year I am having it as a long drink of Captain Morgans Spiced Rum and Crabbies Ginger Beer. It is during this time of reflection that I think of those happy times with those I miss, I also raise my glass in celebration of those who have taken the decision to leave my life.
Regardless of what lead to their leaving, the initial sadness their departures caused, I am glad they did. We learn from all that cross our path, those who are born family, yet don’t act like it, those that start as strangers and become family….. They all count.
Cheers…….. Here is to an action packed 2017 !!
