Goodbye 2011

Goodbye to the old year and hello to the new year of 2012.

This past year has been one of ups and downs. Life has been a struggle but also a blessing.

This past year

- I saw my grandfather pass away

- financial struggles as we continue to learn to live on a salary (it was a blessing also as we could finally budget knowing what our income would be)

- I had to stop running due to an injury of overuse and bad shoe inserts

- conflict in our street, which now seems to be resolved

- weekends away with friends doing something I would never have done before

- a house move at the beginning of the year

- nutrition studies done and finished with the best possible score (99% on one and 100% on another). I now want to continue this line of study, though it will have to wait

- progress in my dyslexic daughters school work

- the offer of a traineeship for my eldest daughter

- and lots more.

I am glad the year happened as I feel that I have learned much from it. I feel that it has given me direction for next year, and the coming years. I feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, that I won’t always be stuck doing this, that I can achieve, but that life will still suck some times and pull me down, but I can get back up and keep going. I have friends, I have family, I have God, I have somewhere to live and food on the table.


Awesome post Judith, love

Awesome post Judith, love your honesty too, life is certainly not always easy being a Mother, Wife, Home Finance Administrator etc etc lol... and then also trying to be a Woman of God which I have found challenging to say the least this year whilst dealing with a teenage boy amongst other things ....wishing you all of God's blessings for 2012 you are an inspiration with all that you do and achieve xxx
