Adios 2009...

Don't let the door hit you in the A** on the way out!
No I won't be missing this year, not sorry to see it go at all. It w
as a tough year with more downs(no pun intended) than ups. It was a year of struggles and stress and fear. It pushed us to our limits and at times just kicked the crap out of us!

But mixed in to all the difficulties of this year were some beautiful moments, respite... a gift from God. So that is what I will try to remember about this year and that is what I will leave you with.
God Bless you all this New Years Eve! May we all rejoice in a new year, may it bring with it hope, healing, and faith renewed.

Our last Christmas together.This was Dec 2008 but I had to include it in this year. It was such a great day. My Aunt died this year,on July 25th. I miss her every day.

One of the best things to happen to me this year...meeting you. You are an inspiration. Even though you've gone through struggles you still have made wonderful memories. The pictures are wonderful. I'm wishing you all the best in 2010. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you and your precious family. Hugs and love

Happy New Year, Stephanie!!! As hard as this past year was for you, there is such a sense of closeness in your family pictures. I feel like all of you came together and held on strong. I wish you much peace and joy in 2010! And I look forward to reading your blog in the new year!

Wishing you and your whole beautiful family a really great 2010, I hope it brings with it much happiness, peace and everything you dream for it to be. Btw it took me a while too to realise that that earlier post was a picture of Emmie, you can really see how beautiful her eyes are.
