I have been doing a little reflecting on certain things. It seems like only yesterday that we were discussing the New Years Eve 2009 Blue Moon and what some of us felt about it falling at the end/beginning of a year.
I felt sure that 2011 was going to be a good year. Looking back, it was an excellent year. It has brought prosperity regarding the things most important to me. This is in no order of importance.
Corey's attitude about school has turned around 100%. He is focused on his grades and talking about college. I don't know how much of it can be attributed to wrestling, but we no longer have discussions about why school is important. One stress off my plate! ~lol~
Terry had a mini stroke. We found out he has high blood pressure, which we didn't know. If it hadn't happened, who knows. Even though he decided to step down from mgmt for less pay, he is far happier at work now. Today when he took his BP, which we monitor every day, it is the FIRST time that he got a normal reading. The FIRST time!! I am so grateful. Why? Can't put it into words. I guess I feel we are dealing with the unknown. The medical bills have given us quite a set back, but heck. I guess we just won't be taking the Austrailian Vacation anytime soon. He wants to go to the Amazon so I guess I'm off the hook on THAT one. ~lol~
We dealt with my teeth. I am STILL dealing with THAT situation. But its all good and will all work out. And financially speaking, well, we did it while we were still working before we get seriously thinking about retirement.
Laurie found a job earlier this year and we are hoping that holds out. Keeping fingers crossed that the RV show in KY is a big success this week.
We have had a very prosperous year. Financially, not so much.
How do YOU measure prosperity?
