"And I asked...can there be breaks in the chaos sometimes?" 
- Coldplay, Amazing Day

Many times in my life I've been busier than I am now - much busier, in fact.  And many times I've experienced a faster pace of life changes.  But I don't think I've ever had a year that's been so chaotic.  It's just been one of those years where almost nothing went according to plan, and where you eventually get weary from life buffeting you around day after day to the point where you feel you have no control over anything.

Yet I am grateful for the occasional breaks in the chaos.  Even though they were temporary, they have been some of the sweetest moments in my life, and I suppose it's only possible to feel that way because these moments came amidst the backdrop of such upheaval.

Happy New Year!  I look forward to what 2017 holds for us all.
