It amazes me that 2010 ends in only two days. Seriously???? This year went way to quickly, and was full of wonderful memories and the hardest of times both. As I reflect on the year, there are many thoughts that cross my mind. I can laugh at many memories and shudder when I think what could have been, had different choices been made. Seriously though, there are a number of people I want to thank that helped to make 2010 the year that it was.
1. My Husband - Darling, you are my best friend, soulmate, lover, and I love you more everyday. 2010 has been a trying time for our marriage, but I know that healing has begun and I love the changes I am seeing in us as individuals and as a couple. You are the best father, and it is my hope and prayer that one day our girls will find men of God, like you. It is my prayer that 2011 will be the best year our marriage has ever seen and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us.
2. My Girls - Wow, I have never been put on such a learning curve as when I became a mom. After thinking I would not have children (actually that it would be very difficult without help) I am so glad to have been blessed with two beautiful little girls. Both of you have very distinct personalities and I love that! You have taught me so many things, including making me realize that I can do so many things I did not realize I could. It is my prayer and wish that through 2011 I will be the best mom you can have and that God will work through me to help you both grow as God's Little Princesses.
3. My Family - Although we have only see many of you only once this year as we celebrated Kat and Kenny's wedding, know that you are always on my mind and in my heart. Distance may separate us but you are always with me during my days. I cannot wait to meet the two new babies that are coming in Spring 2011 and pray that my sister's will continue to both have very healthy pregnancies and safe deliveries.
4. My Friends - Know that each of you holds a special place in my heart and that I would not be the person I am today if not for you. Some of you I have known for almost 20 years, others only a couple years but each of you has taught me so much! Thank you for the laughter, the tears, for the reconnecting via Facebook, and just simply for all the memories! Distance may separate many of us but wow the memories are awesome!
