I can’t believe my last post was 2 months ago and from LAST YEAR!! The end of year came and took me by surprise … well, actually not that big of a surprise, I did expect its coming but the speed of which it came and went … that surprised me. I’m still a little shell shocked that I finished Christmas shopping, put together a last minute proposal for a client, celebrated family birthdays, solved a missing payment at work, enjoyed the season celebrations, made a bid for a new client, learned how to cook popiah, worked some more and ushered the New Year zombie style with my family quicker than you can say Happy New Year. A whole bunch of milestones all rolled into 2 happy busy months.
Now it’s 2014 and *drumroll* on to real milestones.
My 4 year old Goddaughter got her ears pierced!! She didn’t cry and only said that it was “a little bit pain”. Needless to say I’m very proud of her. I was a wee lass of 3 years old when my own ears got pierced and the very clear memory of burning pain pulsating through my ears still sends shivers down my spine. So when little girls want and eventually get their ears pierced, I have nothing but respect for them.
My little Rachie is growing up quick. It’s 2014 and she wants earrings … I have a feeling come 2024, it’ll be tattoos. Part of me is missing the baby she no longer is but I’m looking forward to the new shared experience of getting older that I already share with her brother and sister. I love how they develop their own opinions. How very similar or very different they can view the world from me. How from them, I relearn and am inspired to try harder and be better. I think that’s why God puts kids in our lives 🙂
Here’s to a 2014 filled with reasons to try harder and be better 🙂
