Happy New Year!

Well, 2020 is over. We made it! Our family like most, had many ups and downs. The lesson I want to take with me boldly into 2021 is to remember to really cherish the time you get to spend with your family and friends.

Traditions are so special and our crew has many. This year they were different or couldn’t happen because of the size of our group. I look forward most to when we can all gather in a house, with lots of food, laughter and craziness.

This year I have lots of goals I will be meeting. (Note I will, not I will try) I will share some of the journey as I go. I want to become a grittier person and push through my insecurities to become the person I know I can be. My mantra for this year is “I can, I will, I am”.

I am grateful my husband understands the heartbreak of losing a pet. I am not good with dealing with death and especially dead things. We now have a guinea pig, a hamster and most recently a beta fish buried in our back yard. He’s dealt with the funerals and the tears better then I ever could.
