Getting ready for the Holidays...

This year has flown by at a much quicker pace than I ever expected. It's like once you have a child time no longer lingers, it doesn't stand still anymore... it just flies by and I'm not sure it's fair. It's hard to believe I've been married almost a year... it's hard to believe that I'm a mom. It's all real life though, the life that I created in my dreams and prayed would come true.

With Thanksgiving about to come and go again and another Christmas just around the corner, it's gotten me thinking about all the things that have brought me to this point in my life where I am so content. The people, the incidents, the happy times and the sad... it's all had a part in why I am the way that I am. While there are things in my life that still make me sad, make me wonder why...I am still thankful for those moments. I'm thankful for the love that I have known from and for those around me. For my life would not be the same with out them.

Something about the holidays always makes me look back at the years past. I think about what is going on in the lives of those that I no longer talk to, praying that they are as happy as I am. It's not that I wish to go back... but that I will always have a place in my heart for those who have touched my life.

So to those of you who have been a part of making my history, thank you. I pray that you are well and know you have touched my life in an unforgettable way.
