What a year.
I don’t think I realize how BIG this year was until I really sit down and
on it’s happenings.
I think the most important gem I can take from it is
finding out who I really am.
1. First and foremost, I love my children. With every fiber of my being.
Not that I didn’t know this before, but this year, I OWN being a Mom.
No longer do I feel shame for choosing this “profession.”
2. This year I learned that I adore my husband even more than I did last year.
He asks for nothing, but gives everything.
How is it possible that after 14 years he still puts up with all my shenanigans??
3. I learned that I love to surround myself with STRONG, confident, beautiful (on the inside) women.
They push me, pull me and and make me better than I was before.
*I hope you all know who you are*
4. I learned from Rachelle how to be a better friend.
She taught me that giving doesn’t make you a good friend if you can’t also receive.
(This is a tough one to swallow if you are like me and get squirmy when someone tries to bestow kindness upon you.)
I learned that life is precious.
It is NOT to be taken for granted.
Give smiles. Give hugs. Give forgiveness.
Most of all, Give LOVE.
Here is my final project of the year.
For my friend Val, her courageous husband Wayne and her 2 most precious “chickens”.
