Happy New Year-Welcome 2010


Farewell 2009 No you werent all bad there were flashes of real happiness ,
My mother was diagnosed and went through treatment for breast cancer.My Aspergers son made it through year 10 which i would not have thought possible a few years ago,Two of my sons moved to Canberra and my eldest and his wonderful partner bought their first home.One son got a promotion and we all made it through.The end of a decade is a funny kind of thing,makes you realize what happens in 10 short years,We have lost two fathers which changes you,been to hell and back on the aspergers rollercoaster,
I lost a good friend to cancer,Battled with my own demons of weight and worry and crafted my little heart out.I found the internet and blogging and swapbot all of which changed my life completely and at times saved it too.Ten years one decade is all it took for three of my babies to turn into men and fly away.Ten years is all it took to take my husband from a bachelor to a father and a husband and to family life somewhat resembling malcolm in the middle(but much much better decorated and i am far sweeter than her).Ten years and now they too are gone.What do the next ten hold-a good thing we do not know i think.We step forward into 2010 nay we dance through its doorway and await the wonder.

Lovely post.....
I too lost a father in this decade. My grandmother had a saying that I quote chapter & verse....
"You have to be like a duck on a pond..... Quiet & serene on the surface & paddling like hell underneath!!"...
Happy New Year & may this decade be easier than the previous!!
Love,
Marilyn

And so life passes from one decade to the next. Riddled with love and loss, laughter and pain but....
What wonderful journeys we travel along the way making us stronger and teaching us to love more deeply.

Happy New Year's sweet Jules

Health and hope spring to mind for now....Im hesitant to think of the next 10 years, my nest will be empty for sure! Mmm, slow it down to one day at a time, enjoying each moment, everything becomes more precious as we get older. Happy 2010!

Here's hoping the next ten years bring us all more joy than grief and only the kind of challenges that we can handle!
