Three Boys & an Old Lady

This blogging mama loves finding new things and spreading the word about fab finds

Did you accomplish what you thought you would in 2009? If you had it to do all over again, what would you change?

Me, I wouldn’t change a thing. I embraced each and every day of 2009 from the highest highs to the lowest lows. From the deaths of loved ones, to the disagreements with co-workers and the daily dysfunctions of my life.

I realize each person who happened to enter my world this year was put there for a reason and although I may not completely understand their purpose, I am grateful they were there with me for at least some part of this life’s journey.

I learned something new, I did things I hadn’t done before and I continued to pursue things I thought I wanted…along the way realizing I didn’t necessarily desire some things as much as I did the year or years before. Hey, I earned two college degrees last year.

I grew a year older, I matured a bit and sprouted a gray hair or two or three – it’s hard to tell when you can’t see the back of your head. My children grew a few inches taller. Jeez Louise, the twins grew a foot it seems, but I’m still mom.

I lost a little too. A pound here and there, an inch in my waistline, bust and hips. Well, who am I kidding. For every pound I lost, I gained an ounce at least and my clothes albeit a bit loose I’m sure that’s probably due to the fact I haven’t bought any new clothes in a while. Nothing’s sagging so it wasn’t much of a loss.

Yep, 2009 was a great year, but nothing compared to the adventures headed my way in 2010. You never know what life beholds, but enjoy the journey.
