The joke was on me

Check out what I wrote last year:

I pray God blesses all who reads this with a wonderful new year pregnant with hope, joy and happy possibilities.

God has a heckuva sense of humor.

As I was just saying to Trinity, 2011 seems to have been a crap year across the board, if Facebook and Twitter were all the evidence you had. For me, it was an….emotional roller coaster. There were good things, like the birth of my second boy Christopher, who is turning out to be such a sweetheart. There were bad things, like….situations that I continue to work through. It’s possibly the first time since I started blogging that I don’t completely agree that it has been the best year yet.

But life is long and there are going to be years like that. Let me put it this way — I opened out 2011, fully expecting certain major changes and getting something completely different.

Now, opening out 2012, I have certain expectations, but honestly, I have no idea what to expect. I’m hoping some seeds I’ve planted will bear fruit. But if not, nothing’s been lost.

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately. I found this, and I think it applies.


Happy new year to you and yours and I hope you keep in touch! I suspect (and hope and pray) I will have totally huge and awesome news this year!
