Over the Past 10 Years

This is inspired by a post my sister wrote in her blog.

Over the past 10 years, I have (in no particular order):
  • made three incredible children
  • lived through most of the 4th decade of my lifetime
  • felt time stop when the Towers crumpled and stood in shock as the hospitals rose as one to help the victims, but no one came
  • said good-bye to my adventurous grandmother, my feisty great-aunt, and my beloved father
  • been diagnosed with a brain tumor
  • sailed through brain surgery with the unwavering support of my husband, family, friends, and AN community
  • completely lost the hearing in one ear
  • adopted feline furbabies - first Guinevere and then Arthur a couple years later
  • visited London and Scotland
  • bought two new cars
  • watched my husband transform into a father, and fell in love at a whole new level as it happened
  • graduated with a Master's degree in Training & Development
  • created a career in technical training
  • gave up my career in technical training to be a stay-at-home mom, with no regrets
  • found a new career working with other remarkable, supportive women with young families
  • discovered the joy of volunteering in ways that help families
  • made some amazing friends who have enriched my life and changed me for the better
Happy New Year!
