Wishing everyone (that includes me!) a happy, healthy, prosperous 2003. All told, 2002 was probably the most difficult year of my life.
Leaving 2002 behind, and saying hello to 2003, I believe I've matured, I'm a better parent (I think), husband (I hope) and person in general. My demeanor has changed, living by myself for 8 months affected me in a few ways.
The greatest gift I had in 2002 was Xavier, and seeing how Xavier and Cyan get along. Being an only-child, sibling issues are brand new to me. It's fascinating.
Thank you to all my family and friends that helped my family and me through uncertainty.
