So the new year is here. 2010. And I am excited to see what all is in store for me this year. But I have also been reflecting on the past year over the last few days.

Today Pam-Maw has been gone one year. The hurt is still deep but not as raw as it was. And I still miss her deeply.

I turned 40 in March. 40!
Still can't believe that. What in the heck happened to 20 and 30. Life is really like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end the faster it goes!

I lost my job in June. But on the positive side, I got to spend all summer with my boys and in July I got a new job with the most awesome benefits I could have ever imagined. When God closes one door He truly opens a much better one.

We didn't have to evacuate for a hurricane. That was a blessing right there. I don't know if I could have stomached another hurrication.

The next thing I knew I was picking out Halloween costumes and planning Thanksgiving dinner.

Christmas came and with it a frenzy of flying wrapping paper. R1 grew up a little bit, he no longer believes in Santa Claus. He believes there is a Santa but he knows that Hubs and I buy his gifts, wrap them, and put them out for him. But it was still a great Christmas. Spent a lot of time with family and friends. We didn't rush or hurry, we made it as relaxed as we wanted and I think it helped us to really enjoy our time off.

And with this new year comes the new years resolution. And I have made one. I have resolved not to have any resolutions. I just want to spend time with my family and friends.

I hope each of you have a wonderful year! And like I have said before...Life is like a roller coaster with all of it's ups and downs...we just have to hang on for the ride!
