To quote an old Counting Crows song, "It's been a long December and there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last."
The last few months have easily been the toughest of my life. The Mr. and I have been through one of the worst things a young couple can experience together. I've been put through the physical and emotional "wringer." And I lived to tell about it.
And despite this being the worst of times, in some ways it has yielded the best of things. I love my husband more than ever. I'm closer with my family. I have more faith. God is closer. I am stronger. I see how precious life really is. My priorities are different.
It's a new year and I have faith that 2011 will bring better times.
So consider this my comeback to blogging. I've missed you all dearly and it warms my heart to hear that some of you missed me too. Writing, and now blogging, has always been a passion of mine, and the bonus of connecting with and befriending such amazing people is a huge added bonus. I love you all. Happy 2011.
