Pictures say so much. I have an awesome new camera that I am determined to learn how to use and capture life as it is happening. These are just a few from Christmas eve and Christmas day of my family. After a very trying and emotional year I am moving forward. I have survived the loss of my job, cancer hitting close to home in our family and continued health concerns with my husband…but God has prevailed.
There is always someone who has it worse, lost more or did not survive the year. Learning to be completely thankful for what I have, has been a life long struggle, but here we are heading into another year with new promises on the horizon and new jobs, better health and oh so many possibilities.
This journey has been been totally awesome with many many more awesome things to come. Watching your children grow up and their children grow and getting older and older by the minute. Time waits for no one.
Gramps and I took the 2 oldest grand daughters to see The Nutcracker and I think the adults that went enjoyed it more and than anyone else. But exposing the children to the Arts is educational and fun. They will remember this for a long time.
In another week we start up another year of our Roller Derby Team (Yellow Rose Derby Girls). Now we have the opportunity to try out for All Stars and 3 home teams. I am super excited to be part of this league and to see the growth and success we are having. This chapter is slowly coming to its natural conclusion as well. It has been one hell of a ride!
This me when I first started roller derby and me now…
