Bring on 2011

It has been a rough year here, I am sure other families can relate. So yes, I am more than happy to see this challenging year behind us.

I remind myself that each hour we have in this world is a gift, but this year, oh, what a tremendous struggle, mostly financially, that is what happens when wages are frozen but prices of everything else go up and up, and I know we were not alone in this. In many ways it has been better for us than for others.

I am grateful our children have been relatively healthy this year, other than some colds and tummy flu's, we have had a good year.

I am grateful for the gains our three youngest have made in their developmental skills.

I am grateful my husband had a job, budget cuts have threatened his job for two years. 2011 will be another struggle, more cuts in store for our school budgets, prayers are appreciated.

I am very grateful for my continued remission from cancer.

I am grateful for the new daughter I gained this year via our sons Terry's marriage, we Love you Anna.

I am grateful for good friends, especially those who helped us make Christmas special for our little girls.

I am grateful for older children who are giving and caring and understanding.

I am grateful for the food we had to eat, the home we had to live in, and a running vehicle in good condition. More than many people have throughout the world.

I am happy for have all I have, for the blessings of my family and friends and wish everyone a wonderful 2011.
