I was planning on doing a bit of a 2004 .. the year that was. Alas, things have been busy and I just didn’t get around to it.
Who would have thought that in the space of a year I’ve had a baby who is now almost a toddler. From the emotional drama of having a constantly crying newborn to the laughter and joy I get every time I see him smile and laugh, last year had it all. I learned how shockingly unimportant my wants and needs are… I learned that I’m flexible, even when I don’t like change… I’m resilient in the face of non-stop demands of motherhood… I have a high pain threshold (says my doctor)… I’ve come close to my limits and found that to be scary. If it wasn’t for a strong sense of humour and possibly that pain threshold I may well have crossed that line. But if it wasn’t for all that I wouldn’t have discovered what it is to feel that unconditional love for a child. Oh, what it is to be human.
It’s been an emotional year. A year of deaths and births, endings and beginnings. If it wasn’t for the generous gift of a departed friend we wouldn’t have been able to start building our new home. I look forward to the coming year. More beginnings and less endings, please.
