Out with the old

I know 2011 was a pretty crappy year for a lot of people but for me, it was one of the best. Obviously, I had a better year than others because I was blessed with my son this year. And because I was told I'd never have children (suck it, fertility "specialists") I feel doubly blessed.

Sure, there were lots of sleepless nights and plenty of tears, but all in all, 2011 has been the best year. I have experienced so much joy, so many surprises, so many proud moments.

On top of the wonder of becoming (and being) a mama, I got to spend Thanksgiving with my brothers and their amazing families. (I love that we all got together and it wasn't because someone died!)

So, as 2011 draws to a close, I feel for everyone who had a crappy year and pray that 2012 brings you health and happiness. And for those of us who had a lovely 2011, here's to more smiles and laughter in the coming 12 months.


  1. I am so happy for you, Pam, that you had such a special year. It has made my year a little better, knowing the joys (and even the trials) that have come to you. I am excited for you for the years to come.

  2. I'm so very happy for all the blessings 2011 brought you and Albert! Here's to 2012 and the world not ending. :)

  3. An awesome year for you indeed! Hope 2012 follows suit! Happy New Year to you and your little family!
