Welcome 2012

As I sit here overlooking the camp where we are, about 6 and a bit hours north of Perth, I reflect on 2011.

 It's been a year of highs and lows. I have experienced real grief for the first time in my life. It is taking me a long long time to come to terms with it. The dynamics of our family have changed. Things will never be the same again. I am not the same person I was going into Twenty Eleven, but hopefully I've come out stronger for it, and more accepting. Life does go on.

All the children have grown so much this past year, not just in size, but in maturity too. We are fortunate to have everyone healthy and happy, something not to be taken for granted. They excelled at school, and at dancing. We are so proud. They delight us every day.

Anyway, I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day, relishing in this camping experience which Dad gave us the love for. I hope that you are all blessed in 2012 with good health, peace, love and happiness.
