There were some down times, like when Chuck decided to fall off his barn and break his arm, then turn around and break his hand on the other arm. More down times where a small time during the summer when I wasn't sure if Thomas and I were going to have much of a future and when I lost my job just two weeks before Christmas. The highs of this year, we all have our health, Thomas and my relationship is more secure and he has been a big support for me. My family is blessed beyond words. I am a very lucky woman.


Now to head onto a new year. What will 2010 hold? Hopefully a new and better job for me, hopefully we all keep our health and actually get healthier this year. I am claiming great things for my family and friends this year.... we all deserve it.


Happy New Year!
