So I thought I would list 7 (my fave number)things about my year that are things I will remember and that my year would not have been the same without.
~Finding a lump in my breast, scared me so much and made me appreciate life much more than I already did.
~Finding out my mom had cancer was possibly the worst moment of my 2008, I mean how do you deal with something like that and not break down.
~Forgiveness, not by me but to me. There were several people I had hurt when helping to run an online forum who gave me much more than I could ask for. I treated them wrong a year ago and they still put that aside and accepted my apologies. It takes a big person to forgive someone who had no reason to treat them badly, much bigger than a person that holds a grudge.
~We spent record number of visits in the ER my main memory was basically slicing into my finger on the night of my anniversary dinner. What a fun date 🙂
~My husband graduating. What a big goal this was that “we” worked toward. I was so very proud of him. He had stopped going to school when we got married because he had to work 2 jobs (along with me working at the time) to support a family. I am so proud of him.
~Aidan starting preschool. I had such mixed emotions for this, I was sad b/c Gabriel never went to preschool but Aidan having a much more introverted personality just needed to go to get that extra nudge to get him talking more. Well it has worked so well I am so happy. Best decision I could have made, he is talking so much more and it is wonderful.
There is so much more I could lists but those are the big things that were a part of my life in 2009. Of course the best things consist of family memories and as always all my new friends in bloggy land. 2008 just would not have been the same without any of you. The hard times made me appreciate the fun times much more.
What are some things that stick out in your mind of your 2008?
