I feel like I should insert an immensely profound post here about all we have learned and been through in 2009, how happy I am to see this year go, let’s hope 2010 is better, blah blah blah.
But I just don’t have it in me tonite!
It was a good year. Because you know what? We’re all here. We’re all healthy (for the most part). We’re still a family with a good roof over our heads and good food in our fridge. We have had some tears, some scary moments, and, sure, more medical knowledge than I ever wished for, but we’ve also had some good laughs. Made some good friends. Shared oh-so-many good times.
And that’s what the year memories are really all about. this year – any year.
Hold on to the good ones, let the bad ones fall away.
And consider how very surreal it is that at midnight it will be a new day, a new month, a new year and a new decade. There is SO MUCH possibility out there! I am usually so wrapped up on this day with my “goals” and lists and “resolutions” to make change…but this year, not so much. I am not quite sure why except that i have been running around like a crazy person this week between Ben being gone in TX with my car, so I only had his car which would not fit all five of us at the same time. Yet we still had to live our lives which meant therapies, doctor visits, grocery shopping, etc – having to juggle kids. Add in Kendall deciding to throw some weird sickness crap in to the mix and I really am not even sure what end is up right now. (this may or may not be evidenced by the rambliness of this post…)
Anyways. I think 2010 will be a good year in its own way, and for its own reasons. 2009 has taught me a lot, opened my eyes, brought me to my knees, and made me realize what life is all about. I can only hope that 2010 will be just as full of growth and good things. Good even through the bad. Good that is all the more appreciated because of the bad.
And I think that’s about all I have to say about that.
Don’t worry. As soon as I have three seconds to rub together I’ll be sure to update more. there will be lots more terra-talk drivel to fill your boring January days.
