2014 is almost over. This year has been as much a roller coaster as the last one was. Life is never simple and if it was it would be boring. I have had a good year and I am very lucky to have the life I do. My husband is amazing and this past year our marriage has just grown even more. We will be going on 5 years of marriage in May and I can not wait for the next 40 with him.
Over the past year I have grown as an adult and learned to face challenges that I never had to deal with before. I am still grieving and sad over the loss of my nephew last year but I am also growing and learning to cope with it. I will never be over it or okay with it but I can live my life and still grieve in my own way. I want to forgive the boy that did it but that is a hard task to do.
We also decided this past year to have a child. I did not know how awesome, upsetting and agonizing that journey could be. I am super excited that we are doing this but I am also tired of trying. We have been trying since August with no luck yet. I know my birth control took awhile to leave my system and I am staying hopeful that it will happen. That is all I can do at this point. I have to leave it up to God and just enjoy life. I have experienced happiness with trying to do this, I have experienced extreme sadness as each month passes. I need to stop stressing over it and have fun, but that is easier said than done.
My store, Country Couture, has grown. My sales has double at least and each day it is getting better. I was almost at the point of closing it until it took back off again. I am glad I did not give up on it. I am very blessed to be able to run my store and work full time. I can not wait to the day when it takes off and I can only run the store! I never thought fashion would be something I wanted to do but it is. I love being able to provide reasonable prices for super cute and stunning clothes!
This past year has been fun, amazing and so many other things. I have a good family around me as well as friends. I would be nothing without the support system that I have. I have an amazing job full time and I get to run my store as well. I have a wonderful husband, who I adore. I have 2 wonderful furbabies who want nothing but love from me. I have a good life and it is not the material things that make it that way.
Last year when I wrote my post like this, I was sad. I had lost Dax and the holidays were extremely hard. This year..I have some positive. I have more to look forward to and I know how to cope with things better than I ever had. I am stronger that I was and I will continue to be that way.
I hope everyone has a good New Year and cheers to 2015!
