I learned that with Finn something new and better is coming each day. I love and enjoy him more each day. Everything that I do is for him, to take care of him, and I find myself so ecstatic to see him each day I can barely contain myself.
I learned that 2 dogs are not easier than 1.
I learned that with transitions there can be greater opportunities coming around the corner or you can know for sure what makes you happy and where and what you want to be. I lost my job, was hired back, Josh lost his job, and then found one he gets more fulfillment from. This has made us look at money differently. I fully expect to be laid off again this spring and if I am lucky enough to be hired back (there are never any guarantees) I know that it is highly unlikely that I will be so fortunate to stay with my team. Although I want to stay where I am, I know it will all be okay. As long as our family is ok, we can survive anything.
I learned that I need to work on having more patience for myself and others.
I learned that I may very good at teaching my kids reading and math but it may be more important for me to teach them how to be good people.
I learned that Finn needs at least one sibling. I don’t know when the time will feel right for us to take on this huge step (if it’s anything like getting a second dog, we need to watch out), but I hope it’s something we can do before he will forever act like an “only child.”
Is there anything you learned for sure this year?
