Another one for the history books

On this last day of 2009, I find myself waxing philosophic.  I remember starting the year thinking it’s been a long time since I’ve walked in a dark season.

I wonder why I ever thought that?

Granted, there were some amazing moments in 2009.  There were also some heartbreakers: Hub losing his job, his mother’s illness which subsequently took her life, and his father’s illness (something he is still contending with).

Through it all though, we were blessed:

  • Our youngest Barky Boy was diagnosed with heartworm in May and, after all his treatments, was pronounced clear in November.  Yay!
  • I took my principalship certification in April … and passed!  It was a very hard test and I have several colleagues that did not pass it on their first try.
  • After only participating in two interviews, I accepted an administrative-level job from the district I interviewed with first.  How many people can say that?
  • I have been able to connect and reconnect with old friends and family I have not spoken with in years through one of the many social networking sites. Who woulda thunk it possible even just a few short years ago?
  • After many, many months of floundering on my racing goals, I have goals again.  The simple exercise of deciding on races I want to enter has refocused me on something I really, really enjoy doing: walking.  And I now have plans to try other events in 2010 like a cycling event in April and a triathlon in May.  Cool, huh?

2010 looms in a few short hours.

What will it hold?

Only the good Lord knows.
