Happy New Year
Happy New Year to all of you! A year ago, I never thought this day would come so quickly. Yet here it is and as I read over that post of what I wanted for this past year, I realize that I did accomplish it to a degree, but I know in my heart that I can do better. I'm praying I get that chance this year.
Last year on this day, my Grandpa died. That spurred in me a desire to truly know those around me. It also encouraged me to be more real; like honest, raw real with others. Which also meant being raw on this blog.
This past year has been quite a journey...
I talked about how I was bored with Christianity. I talked about politics, which is something I said I would never, ever blog about. I also went out on a limb and said that Christianity cannot be contained in a little labeled box.
I talked more in length about our adventures in cloth diapering. I participated in my first ever blog party where I first quietly mentioned my views on spanking.
I shared my 5 Tips For Tandem Breastfeeding or Breastfeeding while Pregnant. I celebrated birthdays and a first haircut.
I talked about what real love meant. I experienced a 5 day long nursing strike and was relieved when she started nursing again.
My scariest, most raw moments as a blogger came just this past December in which I finally opened up about my journey into Gentle Parenting.
Through it all, you have been there to love on me, encourage me, and support me. I am so grateful and each day I feel that love.
I'm looking forward to 2012 with you and I hope that I can continue to show that love through being open and real with all of you!!
