End of Year Thunks

1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?  I began seeing things as they really are.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?  I probably did not keep my new year's resolutions for last year.  It was not a year for refining, more a year for surviving.  This year, though, I will have some good and serious resolutions. 

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?  No.

4. Did anyone close to you die?  No.

5. What countries did you visit?  None other than my home country. 

6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?  Peacefulness.

7. What dates from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?  4/25/10, a day I began seeing truths.  8/20/10, a day of new beginnings.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?  Coming to grips with realities and taking steps toward accepting and advancing them. 

9. What was your biggest failure?  Not being the one capable of fully healing my daughter.  (But I am most proud of finding the people who can.)

10. What was the best thing you bought?  Piano lessons for my son; they have cracked open a whole new facet of his being.  

11. Whose behavior merited celebration?  My son's, my husband's.  I am a lucky woman.

12. Whose behavior made you appalled and disgusted?  If I were to name names here, I would be disappointed in myself.  Several, though, unfortunately.

13. What song will always remind you of 2010?  Ave Maria by Noa.

14. What do you wish you’d done more of?  Relaxing, trusting, accepting.

15. What do you wish you’d done less of?  Worrying, lamenting.

16. Did you fall in love in 2010?  Yes.  I saw yet another side to my husband that makes me love him even more.

17. Who did you miss?  My grandmothers, my mother-in-law, my younger self.

18. Who was the best new person you met?  Shasta.  You amaze me, Sweetie. 

I am looking forward to this new year more than most.  

How 'bout you?

It's been a year of trials and testing around here. Job loss, long illness, new chronic pain in another part of my quickly deteriorating body, and the adventure of homeschooling. I'm looking forward to the new year. Though I'm too scared to say it can't possibly get worse...Happy New Year. You're attitude is inspirational to me.

Stopping by with new year wishes. I hope to pray more and worry less. Not doing great so far, but will keep at it. I am glad that our paths crossed in 2010.
