This evening I spent some time alone to simply sit and reflect on this past year. It's amazing how fast time goes as I get older, and it's funny how much stuff also happens in this same time period. For my family and I we have gone through so much to date; some of it good, and some of it bad. The one thing that has remained true is that we stayed together as a family, and weathered it all. If I could take one lesson I have learned from this past year it is that hard work and perseverance are the key ingredients to being successful in life. It is a lesson I have heard before, but this year put me to test and forced me to put it into action. I know that not everything has been easy, but I have come out stronger on the other end.
