It is weird to me how a year can bring so many ups and downs. If you would have told me on January 3rd, 2008 that I would start my masters program, stop taking birth control, get pregnant and have a miscarriage all in that year I would have called you a filthy liar. Last January I was not even sure I wanted kids and this January is a completely different story. What a difference a year makes.
I keep saying things about 2008 sucking, but that is simply not true. I need to remember the good things about 2008. There were many. Among the top few would be having a stronger marriage, getting baptized, and spending time with friends and family.
That being said I hope that 2009 brings us the greater joy of starting a family.
