Happy New Year!

It seems obvious that I would be glad to see the back of 2010.  So much sadness, loss and just bad things happened in 2010.  But that's life.  In all its complexities, life happens and sometimes it's challenging and difficult. In the midst of the heartache, loss, grief and pain, there were moments of bliss.  Moments of happiness, laughter and joy.  I can't dismiss them out of hand just because the overall picture seemed so horrible.  Each day is to be treasured.  I am grateful and feel blessed to be surrounded by my lovely family.  My friends.  Sunsets.  Sunrises. A clear night sky.  Lying in bed listening to the rain pelting down on the roof.  The silence of the snow.  A kiss goodbye from my baby grandson.  Cuddles with my granddaughter while snuggled up watching Disney dvd.  A look of love from my husband.  A gentle touch of his hand.  His arm around my shoulder.  Strong and sure.

Those moments were also part of my 2010.

My hope for 2011 is more of the same.  All the little moments to treasure.  And healing.  Financial healing.  Emotional healing.  Physical healing.  Spiritual healing.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

I find journaling to be the best way to purge myself from emotional pain. I keep writing until the words no longer sting. I hope 2011 is everything you wish for!
