As 2012 is coming to a close, I have had some time to reflect on the happenings of the year. It has been a year of many ups and downs. I’ve gained eternal friends, loved and lost, struggled and triumphed, and learned more about myself than I ever imagined possible. I am not the same woman I was at the beginning of the year. I have gained so much strength throughout the continuing trials of divorce. I have grown into a better woman and a better mother.
While this may not have been a perfect year, it was certainly one that I will remember for years to come. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve worked hard, and I’ve accomplished some great things. I am thankful for the experiences I’ve had, both good and bad, for they have helped shape my life and have taught me the importance of following the promptings of your heart.
As we are ringing in the New Year, I know many great things are in store for my son and I. I will finally graduate from school. Logan will be starting kindergarten. We’ll be on our way to total independence once again. It will be a year of many new beginnings for our little family. I look forward to all of the experiences this year has in store for us, though I’m sure there will still be a few bumps in the road to come, I am excited to be moving forward with our lives and reaching our goals that we have worked so long and so hard for. We are so blessed for all of the new beginnings in our life. My divorce gave me the chance to start over and get where I wanted to be. I may not be where I thought I would be, but I know without a doubt that I am exactly where I was meant to be all along! Here’s to a fabulous New Year and the joy found along the way!
