This Mountain Called 2007

When I close my eyes and really think about it, I am coming down the mountain. And it feels really good.

I was looking through all the photos I've taken this year and there are so many wonderful memories. One of my favorites is this one of my Aunt Susie & me (with Gray on my back) from our family trip to Colorado.

There seemed to be a lot of extra baggage weighing me down in one way or the other, internal struggles, and just life's goings on weaving in and out that made this year seem extra busy and bumpy.

But in the end, on the descent, I feel molded and trained. As I come down I pass the rocks I stumbled upon on the way up and they really aren't as big as I remember. As much as I am glad for it to end, it was a pretty good year. But now I've been there, done that, and am so ready for 2008.


  1. I'm looking forward to 2008 as well! 2007 was a rollercoaster and I'm ready for the newness.

  2. beautiful picture of a beautiful life... thanks for sharing it with us!

  3. This pretty much describes my year, too, Steph. 2007 almost wore me out, emotionally, so like you, I'm looking forward to 2008.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Just reading this post makes me feel this exhaustion and big sigh...remembering all that has happened. Wow.

    I'm definitely ready for 2008, I love starting fresh!

  5. Good for you. So many people are either depressed over the past or scared of the future. It's brand new experiences we're adding to our journey.

  6. Sounds like great advice.....Merry Christmas. And Happy New

  7. When I wrote my Christmas email I felt the same way. I think my mountain was called 2007 AND 06!

    We are living and learning with each year....
