Good-Bye 2009

December 31st, 2009

Finally, a moments peace to sit and ponder as we head into the last few hours of this year before we knock on the doors of 2010.

I have a myriad of thoughts running through the grey matter, all of which are reminders of this year. The jumbled thoughts alone are a reminder to me of how this year has been, at least to me- a blur. After such a strong 2008, I’m afraid that 2009 came and went in a bit of a jumble.

I do have many memorable moments, probably the one that touches me the most being the one where Samantha came and spend her 40th birthday with me. We shared lots of laughter and I’m grateful for her and her friendship.

I live a blessed life. My True Blues never let me down, and I know that if I need them, they’re there. I’m truly grateful for each and every one of them.

2009 has seen some friendships fade, and that saddens me. I think in many ways I’ve changed, and I am finally understanding that some things in life do happen for a season. There are those friendships though, that even though time may pass and we may change as human beings, the friendship and relationship grows, and I cherish that for the special gift that it is. God has also blessed me with the opportunity to meet a few other new people and to also be able to count them amongst my friends.

Marcel and I are going strong. I love him dearly, even though there are times when I want to strangle him. Of course, it goes without saying there are those days when he feels mutually the same and would probably love to strangle me as well, so it balances out.

It doesn’t look as though having children will be something that will happen for us, and I’m quite ok with that. I really don’t think at my age that I have a desire to birth a child, although it was my prayer that we have one together. I know that all things happen for a reason, and I accept it without question. In addition, we’ve added a furry 4-legged member to our family, who is simply known as J.J. His breeder named him Jumper, and while that is quite adequate, I prefer calling him J.J. since Marcel rejected the idea of me calling him ToTo. Secretly, he’s my little ToTo and when we walk together, I notice him prance and for a moment I dream I’m traveling down the yellow brick road in my Ruby Reds.

2009 is the year that I can say is the year that writing really became more than a hobby, and who knows, one of these days, I may get that book finished and published- even if for myself.

There is so much I can say about this year- but I anxiously await what adventures 2010 shall bring.

What are your most memorable moments of 2009?

    2009 was a rollercoaster. As you know I had my baby and that was the highlight. But I was also unemployed for most of the year and although good for mommy and baby, I was not ready for some of the trials that faced us. But God is good. 2010 will be a-okay!
