Another 100 word storytelling. I realized going through my December stories it felt a little weird being so serious at a time of holiday happiness. I sort of realized that I didn't have a Christmas theme, and that I basically carried over some of my November reflections (with a little more drink).
Well. Being the start of a new year, I figured I'd try to focus on stories that featured change and resolutions... and... well... try to be a little more cheerful minus the alcohol.

01/02/2014 (Thursday)- She Sang of Resolutions
I wake to a bluebird singing just outside my window.
A new year song: of change, of life, of beginnings.
It’s trilling song filling the air pulling the gray sky curtain aside and letting the sunshine in. Her lilting notes coming from afar, real and sure like a silver evening star leaving in the dawn-light with packed-up dreams of faith and hope. A gift wrapped up tight.
She hops from side to side with each little do-re-mi, leaps on high notes like a blue-feathered dancer flying away.
Leaving an echo of her song…
…that this year, everything will be alright.
