2010 – a year to remember?

2010 has been a bitter-sweet year.

We’ve moved house

We almost lost a Father

We watched a Sister get married

We watched a marriage fall apart

We found out about our Cub

We saw a friends baby future fall apart

It feels for every good thing to happen in our year, we had to have something go bad, or go wrong.

Everyone has high expectations for the year ahead. When that clock chimes at Midnight, people’s perception change.

So, when that doesn’t happen we become hateful towards that year.

‘Next year has got to be better than 20xx’ is a phrase often uttered.

2010 will always be the year we found out we were going to be parents. Against all odds, we are going to be parents.

That is something to remember this year for.

    Beautiful post.

    I choose more to try to remember the year positively. Sometimes there are deaths, divorce, other major issues, but sometimes, there’s just nothing you can do about it, too.

    Mourn and reflect on the bad things, but ultimately, it’s probably better to remember more of the good.

    The people whose relationships fell apart are still alive, that’s a good thing. You *almost* lost a Father, but didn’t, right?

    It definitely sucks about your friends not being able to have babies, but there are always other options available to them, too. Maybe they were supposed to go down a different path.

    I feel like I am lecturing. Sigh.

    Becoming a parent is so awesome. The first few weeks are incredibly hard, especially as you realize that not only is this little person in your life PERMANENTLY (nothing can prepare you for that realization), but that you love them more than anything in the world.

    2011 will be amazing, regardless of what else happens, because your Cub will grab your finger for the first time, and shock your entire existence into breathing, all over again.

    😀 ❤
