Review of 2010 & Word for the year...

It would be honest to say that 2010 was a roller coaster year
for us with some distinct highs and lows...

I went to CHA in LA
went on our first cruise
Visiting the Elephant Parade
17 years of marriage
loving teaching scrap booking classes

Our house fire
Mum's fractured arm
2 operations
Delays due to Volcano
Lots of stress...

I've learnt 2 major lessons during all this

1) I am much stronger than I ever believed,
when I thought I could take no more,
I have found an inner strength to help me cope.

2) I have some AMAZING friends
who aren't afraid in a crisis to get
their hands dirty
or listen to the ramblings of a demented woman !!

So on to 2011

My word for this year is

We plan to rebuild our family home
after it's destruction by fire.

On a personal level I am going to pick myself up
& dust myself off
after a year of trying to come to terms
with all the last year through my way
I aim to emerge as the happy, sociable person I once was,
I have been changed by my experiences
but now aim to channel this energy in more positive ways

many thanks if you have read this far !
I'm not known for long blog posts !
