Posts from 2009

I found this on a friend's blog. It was a great idea, so I thought I'd follow suit, but I changed things a bit. He chose the first post from each month; I wanted to put down what I thought was my favorite post, so here they are. Each has a link attached to the title if you want to read the entire post. Otherwise, the first sentence is listed below the title.

And so, I present the recap of The Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nine, or A.D. MMIX:

I think I have mentioned a few times how I feel strongly that lessons in my life are learned one at a time in a concentrated manner.

"Shaken, but Standing Stronger"
Note: Before you read this post, please know that it's a bit lengthy and personal.

"Messages from Mom"
I learned from my dad after my mom passed away (March 17, 1999), that my mom always stopped to pick up stray pennies.

"Doctors that Listen--a Dime a Dozen"
Okay, Alyson, I'll end your curiosity.

"Summer's a-Comin'"

Lachlan Julia Hess arrived last evening at 10:33.

"Just What We Needed"
L is sleeping in her carseat right now waiting for her mother to get her act together.

"Putting the Baby in the Swing"
I went to bed with a terrible headache last night and woke with it this morning.

"Binding and Casting"
It is said that in the last days Satan will be bound and cast into a pit.

"Twilight Zone"
Seven years ago today, I was in a car accident.

"Just Taking a Look Around"
Do you ever have the feeling that you've had your head in a hole in the ground most of the time and every so often you lift your head up and realize that life is going on around you?

"Children--What a Blessing"
The year T was born, there were a whole bunch of boys born in our ward.

It's so fun to look back and reflect. So many things to work on and improve in 2010, but what a blessed year 2009 was!

what a great idea. the penny thing with your Mom got me. Now that my Dad has passed away my Mom insists that every time she finds a penny it is Dad's way of saying hi to her. I guess it was something she read from Heloise once.

I was particularly touch by Messages from Mom. What a beautiful reminder of her presence. Something so small and simple.

Thank you for your encouraging posts. I have enjoyed reading your life stories and will continue to do so.

I wish you and your home a very Merry Christmas! may the spirit of Christ dwell in your home this holiday season.

What a fun retrospective, huh? Thanks for sharing your favorites. I have to
admit being torn every year between cherry-picking my favorites and just seeing
what the luck of the draw would turn up. I kinda like both, but have been
intersted in the slice of life revealed by the first-of-the-month sampling
to keep doing it. Maybe I'm just chaotic that way :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
