Oh, 2010 I am so happy to pack you up and KICK you out the door!
2010 wasn’t all horrible, it actually had some pretty awesome moments. I grew as a person, wife, mother, friend and daughter. I was challenged and faced with obstacles I NEVER thought I would face. I rewrote my hopes and dreams. I prioritized what was really important, and what was not. I learned that I am a fighter and I can and will do whatever it takes. I learned to rely on others and accept help. My faith in humanity was renewed. I learned who my true friends are and those who were not. ( I need another word for learned)
I met some amazing people, some of who I never physically met, but who have prayed for us and got me through some dark times. I reconnected with some family, that have proven to be a huge source of comfort and support. I loved my family more than I thought was humanly possible. I stopped to soak in the moment…be it bath time, story time, dinner, or late night cuddles with my husband. I ‘ve learned that sometimes I just need a day to cry and be off, and that its OK for those days to happen, but not to let them consume me.
So really I have a love/hate relationship with 2010. I think 2011 is going to prove to be just as trying, in a whole new way. Regardless, 2010 has given me the knowledge and strength to take whatever 2011 has in store.
