Good-Bye 2009 and Welcome 2010
2009 can be summed up as simply amazing.
A year full of blessings, happy times and moments that took our breath away. Tears of happiness were shed, and meaningful conversations were had.
Plus, so much love that my heart could burst at the seams.
There were times much anticipated and decisions and choices that were fully planned. Ones made that would change life as we knew it.
Gratefully, the big guy upstairs is always looking down upon us. He has gifted me with not only this year of happiness but the last three years of my life have been the best years of my life to date.
The good heavily and I mean HEAVILY outweighed the bad.
It’s time to say good-bye to 2009.
I’ve learned so much this year, learned to have faith that every single thing that has occurred has its purpose. I even realized that my calling in vocation is even for a reason.
I never imagined working in health care
If I could go back in time, I’d do it right after high school and be doing it like I am now. Only earlier. I love helping people and enjoy making a difference in their lives. Mostly, I love being a wave of fresh air that maintains integrity on behalf of those who cannot fend for themselves.
I can see myself branching off into other areas in health care in the next few years as well.
Sometimes, out of the sake of curiosity, I wonder what it would be like if I was still doing that entertainment show. If I was still working in media, would it make me feel as rewarded as I do when working with people?
I mean, it is something that I am still extremely passionate for but in another sense I have found a newfound fire. That’s why I believe I am blessed because I simply enjoy what I do and Hubby is just as blessed. I still have my freelance writing to quench my need for writing!
Another milestone this year was planning the birth of my second daughter
It was the best decision I have made and I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I cannot wait to welcome her into the world this year.
Being a mother is something that is absolutely irreplaceable.
Everything you do is for their sake and the love that I feel cannot be described in words. Being a mother is a sacrifice, learning every step of the way and changing whatever needs to be changed in order to make life better for your children.
I’m currently loving my second pregnancy. Words cannot describe the euphoria it gives me when I feel my baby move and kick. To know that very soon I will see this little baby become her own little person.
Just as I have seen my beautiful Peanut evolve into a talented, artistic and loving human being. This pregnancy is a lot like my first in the sense of the same symptoms and such. I have much more support this time around.
I’ve been feeling great throughout most of it and for that, I am blessed and thankful.
I’m already so anxious to meet our little one. Not too long left! We purchased a gorgeous sleigh crib a few months back and set it up. It’s already such a beautiful reminder of what’s to come.
We planned it so that we would have Jelly Bean the same month as big sister Gabby. It worked out perfectly!
Good-bye 2009. Happy New Year here’s to 2010, I pray that it is filled with as much love, prosperity and success and can only extend those wishes to everyone.
The harder you work at a goal the easier and the sooner you will achieve it.
