But on this final day of 2009, I want to hear your thoughts. Before we start making New Year’s resolutions, I want to hear what went well or that you did well in 2009.
For me it’s been a difficult year. I watched my mother die; I’ve had crushing depression; I’ve suffered injuries, illness and betrayal from friends. I built a photography business only to shut it down due to family needs. I’ve gained 15 pounds.
But I’ve had successes too, and the most glowing, fantastical joy of 2009 is my children’s love for each other.
It’s been a long time coming. Kids fight; siblings compete. Five boys create a hug testosterone imbalance at my house(and their little sister is just as wild). But my kids have finally caught the vision of working and laughing together. The divine irony is that the hard things, my whiny list above, welded our hearts together in unity and love.
Please share. What has been your greatest success of 2009? It can be frivolous or serious, but tell us at least one.
