What a big year.

The year I became a mother for the second time.
The year I discovered the wonder and beauty of breastfeeding for the first time.

The year I felt more love for my daughter than I had ever before.

The year I fell in love with another man.
My little man.
Who never stops smiling.

The most exhausting year of my life.

The year that I was pushed to my limits like never before.
The year of personal growth like never before.

The year I became more of myself than I have ever been.

The year I became more of an earth mother than I have ever been.
The year I embraced the earth muffin in me.

The year my husband cooked.
And cooked.
And cooked.

The year my house looked like I would have never imagined I would have let it look like.
Like an explosion of love and clutter.

The year I dropped my standards of cleanliness and neatness.

For the sake of my own self preservation.

The year I fell in love with my family.

What a year.

I am tired.
Really tired.

And happy.

And grateful.

And so blessed.

Thank you for 2009.



  1. Seriously - you need to write a post every day if you're going to write like this.

    2009 has been a wonderful year, a tough year, but a year filled with so much love.

    Like you said, we have so much to be grateful for, most of all... each other!

    Amen indeed.

  2. Ola, Nice to "meet" you. It sounds like a lovely lovely year filled with everything that makes life worth living. I enjoyed having a look at your poetic words and look forward to coming back for more. xo m.
