December 30, 2007

It is the end of the year already. I cannot believe it. My oldest is 18 1/2, my son is 16 and my youngest will be 5 in 4 days. So, some reflections of 2007…
* Brittani turned 18
* Vince turned 16
* My father-in-law passed away
* My friends’ son passed away
* My dog, Lightning passed away
* We got a new puppy
* I have learned to let go and let my children grow (and still learning!)
* We went independent in homeschool
* I turned 40
* I learned how to make sourdough bread, mmmm mmmmm good!
* I let my youngest have an imagination! (you’ll have to ask, but it has to do with not worrying about the small stuff)
* Camping in August
* Surprise Birthday lunch
* Thanksgiving Day was great and so was the day after
* Taia was healed
* Grace again and again
* I’m learning how to shine, to love, to embrace and to see things more clearly
* I am learning to dream again…

Time is too short to stay angry, too short to not laugh. We never know what someone is going through, so we just need to love more and laugh more. And, I think it’s time we all made a “bucket” list and start doing them! Why wait? Ok…Happy New Year!
