To be a better wife and a better mother. This year has been a rough one. Surviving a tough mortgage market. Going through one of the roughest pregnancies and having a beautiful baby. Having a two/three year old. Adapting. Remodeling. Becoming an Aunt again...suffering loss.
I never blogged about it, but my best friend buried 3 children this year. Earlier in the year she gave birth to twin girls that died an hour after birth. Then 4 months ago she gave birth to a boy that died from a brain tumor the same day. During my one pregnancy she was pregnant twice. She had two funerals for three children while trying to raise her 4 year old. We, with another friend of ours, were having babies together. We, suffered her loss. She taught me that my children and my husband come first in everything. In 2008 I would like to be a better wife and a more attentive, patient mother to my son. I feel that since my daughter was born, I haven't given Tyler my time as I should. I haven't found that balance yet, I suppose. But I will.
And on a lighter side...family reunion is in 6 months...so I have 6 months to lose 30 pounds. But I resolved this year that I would not resolve to lose weight... :)
