What I Learned This Past Year
2018 was a rough year, but here I am strong as ever, maybe stronger, and for sure more tired. In February I introduced my dear daughter and she began helping me with some of the blogging tasks, but life has a way of changing things and that didn’t last. Two short months later she enlisted in the U. S. Army. This was a shock for all of us, but has proven to be the best thing in the world for her.
I learned so much this year, especially about my daughter.
I learned she is confident and strong. I learned she is tough as nails. I learned that she trusts me and appreciates me more than I ever knew.
My daughter joined the U.S. Army this year and is growing and thriving and succeeding in ways I never knew she could.
I learned that I can be a substitute mom for my two granddaughters. I can run them to dance lessons, and pediatrician appointments, read stories, stand in for the tooth fairy and run around playgrounds. All things I thought I was finished with years ago. Not the things I thought I would be doing at this age, but I am doing it all with love for my granddaughters and my daughter.
