My goal for this year was to love more. I made it my main resolution and tagline of my blog for Pete's sake: The Year of Falling in Love. I wanted desperately to be content with our situation, but it was hard.
I went into 2010 like an orange with most of the juice squeezed out of me. And then pregnancy squeezed out the last few drops. I will be the first to admit that for the first nine months of 2010, there was very little falling in love happening. I was all juiced out.
September 12th came along. God gave me a baby. A beautiful baby who completed our family. And thanks to medication and prayer, I got to trade in the old orange for a new one. I still look a lot like the old orange, but I smile more, and laugh more, and feel altogether more thankful for the life I have. I got my juice back, baby. It took me nine months and 12 days, but I finally fell in love with 2010.
I don't know what 2011 will bring, but I'd bet anything it'll be good. I got a feeling.
Keeping with tradition, I made a video of the year 2010 in pictures. It's 3 minutes and 30 seconds of some of the best moments from the year. The song is sung by the Glee cast because if I'm drinking orange juice, it might as well be fun orange juice.
Happy New Year!
