Last night at the dinner table, we attempted to remember, month by month, all the highlights of this past year. No wonder I was so tired this week! Wow did we do a lot! We all had trouble remembering what happened. I’m not good at journaling, but I’m thinking about at least starting a notebook with the highlights of each year by month, so we don’t forget!
Then I started to think about the past decade and was really overwhelmed by it all. Primarily, it was the decade we became a family with the birth of both boys (OK – so Stephen was born a month and a half earlier – but still!). Needless to say – there was a lot of activity surrounding the family. Then of course there was the move to NJ in 2007. I still remember how scared I was the morning of 9/11 and what it could mean to my son’s life. All in all, we came through the decade in good physical and financial health.
There’s no telling what lies in store for us in the next decade, but I have a good feeling about it. I guess the key is is to remember what is truly important in life and keep it all in perspective.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year!
