Bidding Goodbye to 2010

This was the year I turned forty.

Bought a new house, intending to stay longer than two years for the first time in eleven years.

Lost a pregnancy.

Watched many friends be out of work, and a few lose their houses.

Built some bridges with parents, step-parents, in-laws, and step in-laws.

Nearly agonized over the consideration of having another child... or not.

Ran some, sat some.

Homeschooled some more.

Felt elated, apprehensive, connected, and lonely - often in a two-minute time span.

Enjoyed practicing hospitality.

Gave up sugar for a year, and it lasted four and a half months.

Prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed that God would cure me of my temper.

Celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and milestones in the lives of the people I love.

Made some friends, lost a few (people leave Vegas often).

Tried to bring women closer to Jesus and each other at Moms' Group.

Gave the mice away.

Laughed a lot with my husband. Scowled at him a few times, too.

All in all, am ending the year a few steps closer to God. That's pretty good if you ask me.
