I remember the first year Briar stayed up until midnight on New Year’s Eve. We hadn’t gone anywhere, but he was excited to be awake when the new year began. Excitement soon turned to disappointment … he was expecting people to run down the street yelling, fireworks, the whole shebang… I told him maybe at Time Square, but not in Hoxie – at least where we live.
This year when the clock struck 12, Briar, Brad, my parents and I were anxiously waiting for my cousin’s wedding to begin. I told Briar and Brad beforehand, that weddings, although a happy event, aren’t usually exciting for kids their age. They may get a little bored, but after the ceremony we would be able to visit and have fun.
Brad couldn’t wait to see them “kiss and make up.” Briar took a nap in his chair while waiting for the wedding to begin. It was a beautiful ceremony. A wedding is a great way to begin the year – full of love and hope for the future.
After the ceremony, we had food, drinks and fellowship. Briar and Brad were finally able to see the new year begin with a bang.
