It’s that time of year…the last day of the year to be exact. In a way, it’s the finale of the year. But most of the time, I think people focus on the fact that the new year is about to begin. Today I just want to recall that it’s the final day of an absolutely amazing year. 2015 saw so many blessings for me:
- My husband and I moved in to our first apartment. <3 Even though it was romantic living in hotels, there is nothing as romantic as setting up your house together for the first time, and calling it your home. We did, and it was so special. It was everything we had been dreaming about for the past four years.
- I got pregnant. I can’t even describe how happy and even a bit surprised I was when I discovered there was a little baby inside of me. Even though pregnancy comes with it’s ups and downs, I have to say that my pregnancy was a blessing in 2015. Watching my baby grow (inside me!!!) was a life-changing experience and a beautiful testament to the beauty of life.
- Our little precious baby, Sophia, was born. I could write post after post about the experience of giving birth…an experience like no other! But I think what really and truly is something like no other is gazing into the tiny eyes of a little person who is the image of yourself. Feeling a little beating heart pressed up against yours, snuggled deeply and full of trust…it’s truly breathtaking. I discovered myself in an even greater way when I discovered my baby Sophia. The saying about babies is completely true…love at first sight. Dear little Sophie…your first breath took ours away.
I don’t think that 2016 will be able to top my 2015! Then again, when 2015 began, I had no idea that so many blessings would be in store for me. I am so excited to discover all the joys that lie in wait just around the clock. Cheers to 2015, and greetings to a new and merry 2016!
