Some Thoughts for 2007

First of all I can't believe that it is December already and that my tree is decorated, the houselights are up and Christmas is almost here. I'm glad I made it because with two major surgeries, some days I wondered if I would ever be strong again. But I did make it, thank God.

Well, I've finished one year of living in Bakersfield,CA and I have to say that I do like it. It is pretty cold right now, between 55-58F and my pool looks inviting but is actually ice cold. Some days tho, I wish I could just jump in, but I will have to wait for at least 5 more months. Next summer I'm going in every day.

It has been nice to get back to work and to do a few projects to complete the year. It makes me think that I can have a productive life again and still create something special. But of course, the biggest project that I have for 2008 is the birth of the Blunt baby (or babies). I know that that day is coming soon and it is scary and exciting all at the same time. I know I have enough love inside me to give to my baby and my husband is so terrific and will be a great dad. I just can't see or imagine what my life will be with children, how my day will go and the sacrifices and changes that are coming my way. I guess that is all part of the adventure tho, right?

I am just happy to be alive, happy that Christmas is still an exciting and magical time for me. I watched White Christmas last night with Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby. It reminds me of Christmas as a child growing up in Canada but last night it also struck me as to how "white" America really was. I mean back then, to be Caucasian was to be cool, to have it made, if you judged society by the movies of the time. At least the ones I watched with my family. I wonder what a white Christmas will be like for my California kids?

More thoughts to come later...

Thanks for the compliment! My family is such a great support system for me.

I really think that it is important to write and keep a record of these changes in life so that we appreciate the 'process' of becoming what we were designed to be.

I think you are brave to blog about your process and progress and the amazing thing is that you can reach out and touch people who would have never known you otherwise.
