A great, wonderful, life changing year is coming to an end. I half jokingly mentioned to Byron the other day how I'd like for 2009 not to end - thank you very much.
I'm the queen of "let's walk down memory lane". Nothing brings me greater joy than flipping through pages of old photo albums and letters from loved ones. I keep them all. I guess that is the main reason why I continue to blog here. For me, it's my modern day scrapbook/photo album. Since I've been blogging for a little over a year now, it's fun (and sometimes awkward) to look back at my postings. Last night I found these. I remember so well being in the place of thrilling hopefulness. After struggling to find a steady ground to walk on in the years previous, I knew the surprise, joy, love, and heart warming experiences we were due to encounter. I knew...yet there was so much I didn't know. I had know way of knowing. It was just utter, pure, faith. In what, I'm not sure?
It feels good to look back a year ago, and to realize that life was good then too - before we knew the rest of our story.
This year has been the most special of all years. I'm so proud to be Beatrix's mama. She has brought so much - in every way - to Byron and I - and to our families. We are all in love. She is our miracle. We are blessed many times over.
And a sentimental posting would not be complete without some adorable, chubby, eye candy for the viewers!
Wishing all a joyous, peaceful new year.
