I missed my blogaversary!!!!
It was January 5th, I was going to school and I missed it. Life happens to us sometimes. We get busy and forget whats happening in our little world. I agree what is happening in the Big bad World, is important. But what happens in our little world is important too. Having a home where you can relax and be yourself is as important as it gets. Where else can you sit all day in your pj's or bloomers as I call them, and be comfortable as can be.
I have become more comfortable with myself over this last year too. I have checked out a church close to our home not long ago. When I find the right one no one will be able to pry me out of it :) I have come to realize that no matter what anyone thinks, I am going to do what I feel is right. Because it is right for me, not them. I have grown away from my 2 older sisters and closer to the 2 younger ones I think. I have learned not to judge my older sisters and to accept that this is what they are comfortable with.
I have learned to pray a little harder this year and more often. To make my prayers simple and to the point. To not ask for anything I can work for. I ask for forgiveness and help for others. If I live right and teach Jon right from wrong I think I'm doing good. I've learned that a clean house is nice, but not necessary to make you happy. I was getting stressed over house-work... Not anymore. If the dishes are done and we have clean clothes I'm happy.
I have really missed Mom and Dad this past year. I 'm happy to to know that they are in heaven and no longer in pain. But I seemed to miss them more this year. I don't get to see my sisters as much as I'd like, this bothers me sometimes. This ties into missing Mom and Dad. We just spent more time together then. We all have made our own small world that we live in, and sometimes they come together and we visit.
I want to do more camping this spring and summer. Jon is dropping out of boy scouts and we will spend more time together this summer. Diane loves camping and I love it when we go to Mountain View. I should have a weeks paid vacation this year, but I'll take it a few days at a time. That way we can have some long weekends.
Now that I have written a book, what about you? Have you grown over you're blogger year? Are you happier with your life now a year latter?
I am. I'm happier when I come home from work. I'm at peace with myself and my hubby and son. I ask you.... What else is there?
Take care and God bless you all. Donna
