The below post was written on the last day of 2014, however in the mix of life I forgot to publish it. I hope you enjoy.
Wow what a year. I can't say this year has been good but I can't say it has been bad. Maybe a little of both?
This year I have learned a lot about myself. It has been a year of ups and downs for me personally and trying to figure out what I want out of life and the relationships I have with those people in my life. I have had to start over with some relationships that I have had for years, as those relationships needed to go in a different direction, a healthier direction. I am happy to say that those relationships are on the mend, maybe not in the way I had intended but all things happen for a reason and in the way they are supposed to. Thank you to everyone who stuck by me and believed in me. I appreciate you even more than I did, and am so very thankful for each and every one of you.
My husband is my biggest supporter, he is the one I can count on to tell me the truth whether I want to hear it or not, he doesn't sugar coat much and sometimes he speaks before he thinks. However all of those things are what makes me love him even more, I know no matter what he has my back and he would do anything for me. I say it every year but every year I fall more in love with him.
My girls have always believed in me, I get the honor of being their mom and that is the greatest blessing. As they get older I find myself in awe of the people they are becoming. The young ladies, that would rather hang out with boys because there is less drama, the caring hearts that don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, and the strong and independent kids that make me so proud.
My parents, they are well simply amazing!! My mom has my back every minute of every day, and my dad is the greatest. I have always had a good relationship with my parents but I can say as I get older that relationship gets stronger, as I become an equal, a grownup.
To all the rest of my family, whether by marriage or blood, I love you all. Even though we have had our differences, I am going to make 2015 the year of being the better person.
To all the relationships that have ended, thank you for being a part of my journey, you were in my life to teach me a lesson, to grow me as a person, and for that I am thankful.
