The start of a new year always makes me look back with gratitude for everything that I have experienced because I know that however unpleasant some of those things may be, I learned something from them.
The year that was 2011 is not so easy to forget...on the second month, I found out that my mother had cancer and in 4 short months, she passed away. To say that the first half of 2011 has been challenging for me is an understatement. After that, everything just passed by in a blur. And now we have welcomed the year 2012......I wonder what is in store for this new year. I am preparing myself to face more challenges and to learn more new things. So, hello 2012!
