2012 nearly finished.
It has been a year filled with sadness and great joys. Early sadness was the news that one of my brothers had died, he'd committed suicide.
Such sadness led to an unexpected inheritance, and a decision to make this a year of joy and fun.
To ensure life is is lived and enjoyed:
The very next day I came down stairs and found him playing the game on his own, adding up easily. He'd just need to assimilate it in his own time. The mama wobble was over just as it was beginning.
Rye has had a love hate relationship with water; yet in 6 short lessons, with this wonderful swim instructor, my beautiful boy is now swimming and absolute loves being in the pool. The boy who up to the age of about 3 years old was absolutely terrified of the sea and swimming pool.
2012 has been a full year for me too. New friends, new experiences, therapy, exploring, feeling, and finally acceptance and moving on.
2013 does begin with some uncertainty; I need a new minding contract, and I've started a new hobby business; Hooky Delights. Purely for fun, and to fund my yarn addiction - as the inheritance is now gone ;-) The universe will take care of me; an ex-minded child returns part time in January, which gives a little breathing space financially, soon I know a new child will start, and I'll have fun getting to know a new little one and folding them into my little family.
For now though I am focused on tomorrow; the day when my son turns 6 years old.
Six. Goodness, how time flows.
