My tweet cloud - 2009

Here's what I mentioned most in my tweets of 2009:

Thank you Lord

Wow, talk about Slacker McSlackerson.... I haven't written on here in a very long time. Halloween was the last time I think.

I got a little discouraged when I had to make it private. And now I am not sure what I can even write about....

Either way, it's Christmas Eve. Santa comes tonight. And there is so much to do and I am incredibly excited.

There is just one problem.

Both my kids are coughing like crazy, didn't sleep a single wink last night and there are signs of RSV all over the daycare.

But, with that.... I am thankful. So very thankful.

As you may have heard, I found out Sunday that an old friend from high school passed away. I hadn't seen or talked to her since school. But it hit me like a ton of bricks.
She had a newborn 9 day old baby boy. And it was so sudden.
She was shopping and showing off the baby and getting Santa pictures and went into a bathroom and never came out. A blood clot.

That is crazy.... Life is so dang short. And unpredictable.

I went to the funeral yesterday and cried for an hour... gave the family hugs and came back to my cubicle at work.

Today I am exhausted from being up all night with sick children, frustrated a little by not having everything finished and I'm annoyed at having to work while everyone else is home.
But also, I am so thankful.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a mother to my children, to be healthy.... for them to have only a small cough to battle with.
Thank you for my job, my husband and everything that I have in my life.

Merry Christmas everyone. Happy Birthday Jesus.
