I can’t believe that this last day of December is among us. I have been pondering today on everything the year of 2009 brought my family and me.
There have been some wonderful moments for sure. My oldest being accepted into medical school was one of the best moments in our family. This is a perfect example that your dream can come true. Like the saying goes…”Where there’s a will, there’s a way” :) Push yourself to succeed in whatever you dream of being “when you grow up” *wink* Mom and dad sure are proud! :)
We also went thru some tough times this 2009. We learned late 2008 that my father-in-law has Alzheimer’s so 2009 has been hard on my mother-in-law and on us, his family. I love them both with all my heart. Grandpa (as we all call him) is like my father and it was hard at first when he didn’t recognize me or thought I was someone else. Alzheimer’s is such a hard disease. My oldest son took it real hard when he came home for Thanksgiving Day. He, along with all the grandchildren, have always seen grandpa as the strong man of the family. Here are some of his grandkids, great-grandkids, and a couple of grandkids at heart. :)
How did I start blogging? I happened to bump into this great blog and immediately was hooked! Rhoda from Southern Hospitality was the very first blog I had bumped into and just read everything in her blog. That’s when I realized that there was a world of blogging out there! lol
God bless each and every one of you that follow my humble blog. I hope to get to know you all better in the coming year. I have learned so much from all you wonderful bloggers and I’m sure I will learn more about the world of blogging in the new year. Gosh, what can I say…. You all have been such an inspiration to me.
I learned that there are other women like me! We are not afraid to paint a piece of furniture or tackle some kitchen cabinets by painting them. hee hee! Give me a paint brush and some paint any day! :)
