My word for the year is HOPE.
And here's my journalling:
A lot has happened in our lives, good and bad. Still we moved forward as each day passes. These experiences have made us stronger and more resilient. Our lives are not perfect but it's ideal. It's the life we have somehow wished for. We are almost complete, almost. Every year we can only look forward to our faith, our hope that we will soon be completed. This coming year, we will continue hoping, praying for total completeness for our family. (12-31-09)
