2015 is coming to a close. As I sit to write this now, I thought how hard 2015 has been. How much loss. 5 grandparents and one very special dog. Not an easy year at all. But as I sit here now surrounded by my family I realize that 2015 hasn’t been all bad. We have had some really great things.
1- Sidekick 2 is fully and completely potty trained… That is something right there!! But on top of that, he was hospitalized for RSV and came home, healthy and happy.
2-Through small steps..new opportunities have presented themselves…new jobs that began small but have helped provide greater consistency for our family.
3-Speaking of consistency, it seems this year when I needed that consistency I was able to find it in the never-ending laundry and dishes…right there..that is something. Really it just showed me that I always had my people..my family..my most important!
4-We went to the Master’s Golf Tournament. A long time dream for my husband and what a great time we had.
5-I completed the Ironman Triathlon. All that hard work paid off and I made it! Seeing my husband and support crew at the finish line was one of the best feelings ever!
6-Sidekick 1 started Kindergarten and lost 4 teeth
7-I got to run 2 relays with friends and complete one small triathlon with family
8-We had a great camping trip with family
9-We got to fish and boat in our beautiful valley
10-I got to meet Princess Timpanogos up close and personal
11-Sidekick 1 got to see both a baby cow and a baby sheep born…heaven right there
12-I got a special visit from my Momma through the blessings of a Rabbi
13-I found love and support from great family and friends, especially my sisters….
14-I realized I am so blessed. Even when things are busy and hard, I am so very blessed.
15-I have a lot to look forward to in 2016
Thanks for being a part of it all!
