2015 – A Year of Firsts!
As I ponder the upcoming holiday – I naturally reflect on what this past year – 2015 – held for us. We had many “firsts” and totally unexpected events this year.
1. We had a Disney birthday party for our daughter in February and never ever had a thought about going to Disney, much less Florida. The following month I was in Florida and in April the entire family was in Florida – AND Disney.
2. Literally I never expected to be near a horse again in my lifetime. Over the years I developed intense allergies and landed at the ER several times. BUT, in April the kids got on a horse and by May my daughter was in weekly lessons and by July my son was. Now we are at the barn at least once a week and even my husband and I have ridden a couple times.
3. Lastly – our youngest child went in a different direction from the rest of the family’s musical inclinations. She has turned to the saxophone! We shop musical instruments online to make her dreams come true.
