For the first time in my life, I spent New Year's Eve alone. Well, not entirely alone, Bunny was with me. I had some plans to spend it with friends but in the end decided to chill out at home. I was by myself and I didn't feel sad or lonely! Amazing! It's nice to finally feel okay in my own skin, with my own company. Having some time and space to myself has led me to pondering over my life. Here are some of my ponderings......
I love my job at St Paul's working with the children and families. It's lots of fun as well as being incredibly rewarding. Sometimes I'm having so much fun, I can't believe it's actually a job!
I have really wonderful friends who love me and appreciate me no matter what! I have a loving supportive family. I count my girls, Holly & Beth, and Mikey, my son in law, as my closest friends. My extended family are really close knit. They are funny, crazy, loud and the best people ever. I feel really overwhelmed when I consider how much I am loved.
Over the last five years I have felt huge loss but have been able to see the hand of God on me and my life. He's constantly whispered into my ear "I can get you through this", all the time supporting, loving and healing me. I'm still on that healing journey but have reached a point where I am not overwhelmed by the grief. Yay! It's been a long time coming! My life is rich and full. So I'm looking forward to 2010 and what it will bring. Happy New Year!!
