A New Year begins...

What a wonderful day it is to celebrate the coming year... reflection on the year that has past which was full of many ups and downs including a miracle still in the works :) I have much to be grateful for and even more to be thankful for! I had the most awesome Christmas a girl could ever dream of with my wonderful man and it was even sweeter because for the first time in 7 years I had both of my children with me to wake up on Christmas morning! We traveled to Columbia SC on Tuesday and enjoyed a day with my family at my lovely sister Irene's home ~ Wednesday morning before we woke the kids up, we exchanged our gifts and I was completely surprised with a laptop!! WOW!! was all I could say! We relaxed Christmas Day and Friday (my foot was swollen so I had to stay off of it) ~ Saturday we went to Charlotte to see his family and our friends returning very early in the morning and then sleeping till noon Sunday ~ It was hard to pack up the car and leave... Frankie and I are getting so used to the time we have together and its getting harder every time to be apart... we have gotten spoiled the last month with quite a few days in every visit, now we have to go back to 10 days without seeing each other... how we will manage is a mystery to us...but we will make it. I am looking forward to the year ahead ~ many new and exciting things are in store and I am so very blessed to have a wonderful man in my life to share it all with...
Recovery is still going slow as expected but I am glad I still have the ability to walk ~ maybe next year I can put on my dancing shoes for the New Year!!
Resolutions are always good as far as prioritizing what is most inportant in our busy lives, I can see the progress I have made over the past few years because finally the resolutions are not the same over and over again, I realized I was not growing much in the years where not much changed...self therapy and learning self love was part of the process and I am glad I got to know me again! I am embracing life and the many blessings I have... I am anticipating the new years with pure joy and excitement and a heart full of love!

I am so very happy for you. Things are going ok. I guess the kids haven't been honest with me so now there is some drama about me spending time with them. Once again I am the bad guy but hey whats new. Their dad is perfect and always will be isn't that how it works these days. Well again vey happy for you.

I am going to let Savanna live with her Dad and see her Wednedays and every other weekend... the teenage influence is not good for her and its going to be hard, I already feel like the "bad guy" but we are in this together honey!!
