Goodbye 2014

Well here we are on the last day of 2014...
I can hardly believe that it is already going to be 2015. I still clearly remember all the hype about Y2K in 2000, it seems like not that long ago that I married the most amazing man in 2007 and seems like just yesterday that I had my first son in 2009.
We've had some great years, we've had some tough years, we've also had some years of change.
Well 2014 had a lot of all of those. Going into 2014, we had some of the best news we could have heard in years, we were expecting again!!! Then a couple of months later we got some of the worst news, my mom was sick with cancer. In April, we said our last goodbye to my mom. In May, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. In June, the foster girls we had had for a year, went home to their mom. In July, my sister had surgery for her cancer. In August, we had the baby we had waited 3 years for! In November, my sister finished her last round of chemo. In December, my sister had her last surgery and we were able to take a nice, relaxing vacation to Mexico! Our first son turned FIVE just two days before Christmas!
This year has been filled with emotion.
There have been good days, there have been bad days.
There have been the absolute saddest days and the absolute happiest days!
Its just like any other year. There is always happiness and sorrow, but it was so much more pronounced this year.
In about 4 months, I went from mourning the passing of my mom to being completely and overwhelmingly joyed at the birth of our second son!
I haven't been around on this blog much this year.
Between all the goings on, I just didn't feel like I had much to offer here.
I popped in to tell you basically the same story I'm telling you now, but I'm going to try better in 2015.
I don't know if I have much to offer still, but I do know God has taught me many lessons and it appears that 2015 is going to start in much the same way.
God's doing a work in my life and hopefully, in some way, it will come out in my words and will help someone, somewhere.
 
Goodbye 2014, time has flown and on some days it crawled, I've had much sorrow, but also the greatest joy within your 365 days and now it's time to move into a new year with all new experiences awaiting!
 
But at the end of the day you can just call me B-L-E-S-S-E-D!!
