2011 has brought a lot of new feelings, new experiences, new emotions.
After Dennis deployed, I learned how to go from being a new Mommy to a Mommy and a Daddy. I took on every responsibility in the house. Some, I failed at. Other things I feel I succeeded at.
This year I took a full course load in school, was FRG leader, arranged a move across the world, and started the extremely slow process of rebuilding my shattered world.
Hopefully 2012 will bring the Little and I plenty of amazing moments. How I wish I could be celebrating with my friends in Germany, I know the things are where God has planned. I may not like them, but it is all about accepting what I cannot change and dealing with what I have on my plate.
I've learned a lot in 2011, I've been let down and I've seen the people that will be there through it all. I've laughed and cried; made new friends and said "see ya later" to old friends.
I don't know where I'll be this time next year, but I can't say I regret any decision that I made. I've grown from each individual one.
So here's to you 2011, a year I'd love to say I "wish I could forget" but one I know will make me stronger when I look back on it.
