As I sit here I look at the clock and it is 10:30 p.m. I look back and see that the last time I made it to Midnight on a New Years Eve was when I was pregnant with my daughter on December 31, 2003. Is this a blessing??? Yes. I have learned over the last 6 years that giving up New Years Eve is worth it for the smiles I receive each from from these 2 children I love so much.
But this post is not about what I have given up, or even how much I love my children for that matter….This is about looking ahead. What will 2010 bring? I hope for me it brings much of the same joys I received in 2009. As of January 1, 2010 I have been an active blogger for 1 year! Yes dear readers that means that I hit my 1 year blogaversary! What has this last year blogging done for me? It gave me one thing I never thought I would have gotten when I started blogging. This wonderful year gave me connections to women I now consider friends. Women, and Men for that matter, that go through the same things I go through every day! What a true blessing I have received this last year to have found these people to share my life with.
So this post is for you, my friends I never even looked for, but found anyway. Thank you for sharing your lives with me, and may we have the opportunity in the coming year to build on these friendships we started in 2009.
Happy New Year to all of you, and may this year bring you Peace.
