It is finally upon us. The last day of 2016.
Some will say this was the worst year they ever had, while others will say this was simply the best! Every person and life situation is different as well as every outlook.
People will be partying it up tonight in hopes for a better year in 2017. Saying “Sayonara” to 2016 and thank goodness you’re finally gone. But when I think about what I didn’t like about 2016 or the bad things that happened, those things made me stronger, more patient and taught me to persevere that much more. While it sucked going through them, they certainly didn’t make my year terrible. It was a year of growing closer together with my family and learning to be a better communicator with my friends and family from afar. 2016 didn’t suck for me. I learned a lot about myself and my family and I believe they did too.
2016 brought Travis’ transfer.
The selling of all our animals and ranch.
We left Anza and moved to Texas.
I had surgery, which turned out to be kind of major with a 6-8 month recovery.
My brother had a baby!
My niece had a baby!
The kids started new schools and one of them had trouble adjusting but who wouldn’t?
We went to Disneyworld!
Really, the worst things that happened was that we moved and had to adjust to a completely different life. Which we are still doing. It’s a big one for me only because we left our “people” behind and I don’t like city living. I miss my people more than I could ever express. And that I had surgery. That certainly doesn’t make 2016 the worst year of my life. I honestly can’t say any year ever was the worst year. 2009 felt like it because I lost my grandparents and Travs dad very close together but that was also the year we got married and pregnant with Delylah. How could that have been considered the worst year of our lives?
I think people over look the good things that happen because the bad things suck so bad.
We won’t be partying it up or hanging out with anyone tonight to bring in the new year. Travis is at work and the friends we have made are all busy. We have been having a Harry Potter marathon and are on the very last one. I’m sure we will get to that today. Today calls for board games, video games, legos and crafts. Who knows…maybe we will venture out in this rain!
How was 2016 for you and what will you be doing to bring in the new year?
