Accomplishments of 2010

Here is a list with some thoughts, thoughts that I am happy about, things that got done last year and things that just make me feel so blessed.

- another year of being cancer-free. I am so happy that I am still here. I am blessed with a family that supports me. I have a great support system at the oncology. And I am happy when I can give back to others that are currently undergoing treatment.
- it was a year of growing friendships with a few very special people in my life. I am thankful to have friends that I can count on when I need them, and I am glad when I can give that gift back.
- it was a hard year with Peanut. Her screaming sessions seem to have ebbed, but I am far from saying that they actually might be over. But if they are, then I am ecstatic about it.
- my love for her grew so much more and I am at a point where I am just enjoying her. It is amazing to see her grow into a smart little girl, that follows her big brother everywhere, copies him with anything, and smiles so much more these days. 
- Coqui is growing into such a good boy - I'm sorry, I have to say it. He is a great kid to have, so compliant and eager to please. He is an amazing student to have, so eager to learn and it seems that he is just soaking everything up what I offer him.
- we celebrated Peanut's first birthday and her baby dedication. It was so special.
- I ran more than 170 miles - 150 of them I tracked, the rest is just a guess. But I am proud of myself for doing it. And I hope to double that this year.
- I wrote exactly 100 posts in this blog - wow, I am impressed by myself.
- I don't want to say that I have become a stronger believer, but I had some real cool encounters and that encouraged my faith and the longing to be closer to Jesus. It was awesome.
- my house looks a little more homey now, we painted, we decorated, we did the backyard, and we also had to do some repairs. But it all feels good, and the house looks better.

I am sure there were many more things, and I will add them as they come to mind. But now I am tired and will go to bed.
