Looking Back

2008 has been quite a year.

I started the year off having just buried my father.

2 weeks later Ally's best friend's mother died. KC was staying with us and I was with KC when she found out her mom had passed. Vicky's death impacted me more then I ever could have imagined.

I got a puppy-my Mack.

My drinking progressed. I was depressed, full of anxiety, miserable.

I joined AA and got sober.

My baby turned 10.

I turned 36.

I wondered if my marriage was going to survive.

I missed my parents.

I found out I had fibromyalgia.

I had my first holiday season without my parents.

And here I am, getting ready to put an end to this year and start the new one. It hasn't been an easy year but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I wouldn't change one single thing because if I changed it, I might not have what I have now.

What was the biggest thing for you this year?
