So, here I sit with hundreds of posts waiting to be posted. I really have a huge desire to post them. I love keeping a history of my family. I love looking at pictures and remembering what has happened. I love documenting the moments that will never return. But, the fact is I have six kids, I have MS, and I have to let many things that I desire to do go by the wayside.
It is 2015 now and I really want to keep this blog updated. I also really want to catch up on all the moments not documented in 2014. The reality is that I likely will not get there. Perhaps it is just better to start from here and document away throughout this year. Fingers crossed that I will be able to post again from 2014...such as our Christmas trip to Idaho. Fun and a little crazy trying to get home. Definitely worth a post. Or our Christmas with my sister and her family. Fun. Pinata...fun. Another post that deserves the attention. Hmmm...wish me luck!
The crazy thing is that I sat here this afternoon with Baby C on my lap. He is 11 months old today. Last week, I started a family time capsule. We will open it in 10 years. I guess that got me thinking about where I was 20 years ago (a freshman in college) and where I will be in 20 years (an empty nester with Baby C likely on a mission). Crazy. I am so ready for each step of my life in front of me. At the same time, I mourn the passing moments. For goodness sake, K is a sophomore in HIGH SCHOOL!!!!! Who would have thought? Likely I will never be pregnant again. Likely, I will never hold my own newborn in my arms again. So, while I am ready to progress forward in life, I also mourn the passing of the moments that are fleeting.
For 2015, I look forward to having a daughter that gets her driver's license. I look forward to having more nights that I can sleep all night than nights that I get awakened by a baby. I look forward to having two high school students in the fall. I look forward to family vacations. I look forwards to busy exhausting days, but days that bring me joy and fulfillment as I get to be MOM of this amazing bunch. I look forward to a great year. Bring it on, 2015!!!
