A year ago today I fully intended to stay up until midnight to give 2011 a final, "Good Riddance!" I did just that... even dropped a few swear-bombs when the clock struck the New Year for good measure. It was, hands down, the hardest year I ever endured. I didn't do a lighthearted "Year In Review" post on Full Circle and wanted none of it. I swore, so help me God, 2012 was going to kick 2011's
ass rear ..
And it did.
From the adoption being finalized in April, to meeting the man (and his kiddos) I would fall in love with, my first official Mother's Day and the new friends we made, to the old friends that kept me from losing my mind. We were surrounded by blessings and counted each one. Our little tribe was on the go all summer (my man lives hundreds of miles away, naturally) but props to him, they were on the road way more than we were. There were few dull moments (and loads of laughter and firsts), that is for sure.
2012 was exciting and stressful... but most of all an amazing adventure.
The upcoming year is looking to present some big changes in our little life. I'm bracing myself for the impending whirlwind but have faith all will be well.. especially since it's in His hands.
2013? Bring it!
Happy New Year, Y'all!
