The Year in Review

December 30, 2008

2008 was a good year.

Yes, half the members of our household had to visit a gastroenterologist in the past year.  Yes, we collectively spent more time in doctors’ offices this year than Obama logged in the Senate.  (Or Palin spent as governor, whichever makes you chuckle.)  Yes, there was poking and prodding of family members young and old. 

At the same time, though… Did anyone have anything horribly wrong with them?  Nope.  Did things often turn out to be a lot less scary than they originally seemed?  Yep.  And why was that?  Ohhh, a little thing I like to call prayer.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that cysts that were alarming were completely gone at a second glance.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that The Husband’s MRI showed a possible tear in his shoulder that would result in 6-8 weeks in a sling and healing time of up to 6 months turned out to be something that put him in a sling for 1-2 weeks and 2 months’ healing time.

2008 brought answered prayer, new friendships, and strengthening for “old” friendships.

It was a good year.

What will 2009 bring?
