Year's End

When attempting to deconstruct the past year it seems like all a blur and yet at the same time very defined. I think it was a really good year for Jeff and I, maybe our best yet. The kids, too. They get along awesome and love each other. It was a pretty terrible year medically, but by now we know that comes in cycles or seasons or whatever. We're getting through it. And hey, we hit our family maximum so yay for using our insurance.

Despite some pretty dreadful and draining weeks (and rainy drives), I can only look back on this year with a full heart. If it took anything out of me, it was what needed to go. And I found a peace in it all that has been very healing. Something I've been looking for... for a long time. It was a year I really felt like a grown up, and a really good mom.

I remember the years where I could not wait for the first of January to come because a chance at a new beginning felt like the only way out. Maybe it was the heaviness of new motherhood and little kids and hard times. I am so thankful to be on the other side, where I don't feel like I ever need to start anything over again. This is just fine. Let's keep going from here.


  1. " If it took anything out of me, it was what needed to go" You are so wise. I like to sit next to you.

  2. I have been looking for a chance at a new beginning. But you are so right: now is just fine. Thank you for that.

  3. Thanks for writing here. Thanks for being you. I wish you (+ your family) good health and many miracles in 2015.

  4. Love this perspective.

    Happy New Year!
